How did you make this work:
Our education work highlights the way that illustration has impacted our lives for thousands of years and that illustration is for everyone. We commissioned this film to help us demonstrate this to people of all ages, especially people unfamiliar with the subject. It’s a mixed media animation, composed around simple cut-out paper shapes that create backgrounds for tiny characters to interact with.
