Sisters Anita and Sonia Singh were both born with congenital cataracts, a disease which causes blindness and has left millions of people in India without sight. A 15-minute surgery can correct the disease, but many rural Indians are too poor to afford it. Recently, aid organizations have provided funding, allowing Anita and Sonia to receive the surgery, and to see for the first time in their lives.

NIGHT PORTRAIT

i am very pleased to announce my finished, final electronic book!!! this is an animated comic about nostalgia. i wanted to capture the feeling of being hit by a powerful memory, and express it through this choreography of digitally painted animations. i was going for poetic, minimalist storytelling. it is less about plot and more about atmospheres. over the past few months i’ve had strong feelings of nostalgia, homesickness, longing, wanderlust etc that definitely percolated into this. it took dozens and dozens of hours to make.

influences include: rebecca mock, bouletcorp, katie turner, scott pilgrim vol. 5, ‘habits’ by tove lo, childish gambino’s STN MTN and because the internet, this comic, this comic, literally every gif illustrator out there, my freshman year partying phase, and my insta and twitter feeds lol

i went mildly insane making this so i hope you guys like it! after so many sleepless nights digital painting and animating i never want to do this again, but i probably will like next week.

love you all and happy holidays <3

My latest project from my AP art class. I made this to represent how the media, especially in today’s generations, can affect the mind of women about her physical features, how it can just corrupt her mind, and makes her think that beauty in looks is everything. One’s personality is their true beauty. 11/18/14
