Modern Love




In 2015, Nicholas van der Kolk at the New York Times got in touch about creating an animation to compliment their Modern Love series. This was my first major commission out of school so I jumped at the opportunity. The story centered around an imaginary boyfriend that the narrators grandmother created. The 3 minute animation was created in 3 weeks and while it isn’t the most exciting design and animation I am still very happy with the storytelling.
