I have such a great respect for the people that do animation, for me it has been the most difficult thing I tried. I almost didn't do animation since I graduated, and I have to say that it is somehow a relief. I feel better doing concept art or backgrounds, animation is too difficult and time consuming for me!
I feel like the competition in the industry is pretty wild nowadays, saturated... It might seems funny but I would recommend to not care much about that. Since I don't really care, I feel like I'm more sincere with myself and people can relate to it through my work..
My current style of illustration is based not only on how I draw, but mostly on topics and ideas. I like to take on social related themes, and I try to share my thoughts about the world that surrounds me with my art. I like to illustrate problematic situations and conflicts of a 'not-so-perfect' world, the darker side of life. I'm pretty sensitive on that matter..
I would love to see more mature narratives put to animation, stories more geared towards adults. There’s something to be said about the relatability and universality of animated characters and I don’t think it’s a stretch to see how those concepts could bring something fresh to an older audience..
