Magoz is a multidisciplinary artist based in Malmö, Sweden. His work focuses on visual communication, problem-solving, and minimalism. Through a poetic language, Magoz focuses on the conceptual value of his images. The elements are reduced to a minimum, resulting in images using bold colours, without strokes, gradients or ornaments, yet full of meaning.
About the project
I do a lot of personal work and experimenting. Distortion is one of those projects I work on a weekly basis.
To goal was to create an interactive animation between a character and the canvas itself.
Adobe Illustrator, After Effects, and Ableton.
Separating the channels to create the distortion effect was a bit tricky.
Sound and music are becoming more and more important in my work.
I always have a bunch of projects on my desk, some commissions, and some personal projects. I also travel several times a month, so this project was developed during the usual juggling.
The entire project took about 20h, from sketches to finalizing the animation.
I am very happy with the result, but, as always, there is room for improvement. Maybe I would tweak a bit the proportions and the character’s shape.
Always work on personal projects, it’s the best fuel for creativity.
