THINGS (THAT LIGHT THE WAY) - CONCENTRIC CIRCUS

Updated: Oct 18, 2018



This could be the longest time between starting and finishing a project I've had in a long time. Also it is quite schizophrenic in its design.


You can see that a lot of drawings were made to make this video for Things (That Light the Way). I gradually drew these frames over a period of a year. Amassing about 1,500 and changing frame rates and tints throughout. I set a few boundaries for myself when I set off on this project:



1. Draw the first thing that comes to your mind.

2. Don't erase anything.

3. Don't throw out any pictures.

4. Don't spend more than 2 minutes on a picture.


Naturally, I abandoned each of these instructions throughout the course of making the video (mainly the first one because I kept thinking of cats) but for the most part I did adhere to them.




It's kaleidoscopic, colourful and crazy.


UPDATE: If you order a copy of the second Concentric Circus album, Critters in the Mist, your CD will come wrapped in frames of this video.



Thanks for reading this, don't forget you can listen to Ampersand and Sand on Spotify and Apple Music or listen/download/buy a physical copy on Bandcamp.
