Laura Kidd's latest album "Direction of Travel" has just launched digitally, with a music video - and I made the animations on it. Watch and listen!
I am so proud to be part of this - it's an amazing song from a brilliant album. I had to listen to it a LOT to synch up the drawings, and I still love it.
It took me a week of mostly drawing and redrawing rain drops, with assistance from my niece Paula who did the lettering.
An early test. A bit too inky!
Making a big neat sheet of regular rainfall, painted with a calligraphy brush pen.
Scanned and animated.
Most of the rain is hand-drawn to suit the specific scene, though.
Editing the rainfalls drop by drop to make it look more natural that they are missing her face...
Experimental digital weather
Drawing a thunderbolt
Extremely helpful cat
All the lettering and some of the rain, by Paula
