How did you make this work:
During the pandemic, I was thinking a lot about liminal spaces - uncanny places that exist on the threshold of reality and the complex emotions these places can conjure. I wanted a balance of darkness and melancholy, as well as nostalgia and whimsy.

Musically inspired by Sun-Bleached Flies by Ethel Cain.

Drawn and hand animated in Photoshop CS6.
