Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday, friends.

Today's inspiration comes from artist Javan Ivey, creator of a fantastic animation technique called stratastencil. I'm not an artist and don't understand all the nuances of Ivey's technique, but in the simplest terms, he adds together layers of cut paper to create the effect you see in the video below. You can visit his site to see photos of the process he used to make this video. You can also see a thirty-second time-lapse of the eighteen hours Ivey took to produce this absolutely incredible result. Enjoy!

 

Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺

  5. Some people are so talented that I just can't comprehend it.

    I was feeling very creative this morning, but it wasn't productive nor healthy. So I'm going to channel all of that into something awesome, productive, AND healthy later on. (It would be now but I'm hungry and dinner is almost done. haha)
