I turned an illustrated poster I made into an animated GIF for FB. Illustrations were made using Illustrator. Layers were imported into After Effects to create the animation. Then I used a plugin to export as an animated GIF. Tweaking the export options allowed me to turn a normally large file into just 2.2 MB—perfect for sharing. The downside to such a small file size on a moderately complex animated GIF like this is that the resolution is a little lower than ideal. The upside is that you can tell a little bit more of a story.
Decided to challenge myself to create a personalized vector avatar for use in social media. This was created in Illustrator with the pen and shape building tools.
Thanksgiving is almost here. The leaves are busily falling from the trees, the rain has paid us more visits, and all the little neighborhood critters are busily foraging for winter foods and house bedding. Inspired by the speedy and often unseen squirrels that dart impulsively across our streets, I decided to create a poster—a royal squirrel crossing awareness poster. Hope this helps, my little friends! :)
