Skirt and shoes

This simple animation experiment uses a pair of Sylvia’s sketches to create movement. Sylvia was obviously drawn to movement and attempted to capture and suggest movement through some of the rougher repeated lines of the skirt and the shoes. By playing these drawings together I am attempting to shake the movement implied from the drawings.
