Process GIF for my recent piece, Sweets.
I first became acquainted with drawing digitally on Oekaki BBS, where the applet allowed you to record a sped up version of your entire drawing process. It was addicting to watch the process of all of my art idols, it gave me the illusion of learning when at 12 years old I could have used my time better by actually… drawing.
But now it’s hard to strike a balance between showing enough and showing too much of yourself online. There’s the temptation to become a full on art exhibitionist and upload every inch of your embarrassing sketchpad, but you still got to keep a little mystery going… or maybe I’m just overthinking it.
Bottom line is, I have fond memories of watching artwork happen in front of me. Being able to peek behind the curtain is always thrilling, so in case anyone gets off on process GIFs the same way I do, I decided to upload mine!
