Sometimes small artworks are more effective than full fetched artworks and animation simply due to their small yet beautiful techniques. One particular case is artist Kerry Callen who created something very simple yet very beautiful. Kerry is actually a comic artist and not an animator yet with simple skills took old comic book covers and animated them in simple “gif” animations.
Kerry didn’t actually alter the art, it is more of a re-arrangement of objects and few additions to give this indication of movement, all the classical looks and elements are there and Kerry has made a simple thing yet the result is big. For now there are only 4, till Kerry realize how big of an achievement that is, Kerry will for sure make more.
I dissected the Spider man comic showing all the images consisted in creating the animation, just in case you’re interested, the other ones contain more images.
