Digital Illustration / Stop Motion - 2017
This design took me 4 weeks. I spent lots of time to create each single image to create the stop motion.
Adobe Illustrator / Photoshop
This is a short stop motion that special focus on social issues. Left-behind children is a really serious issue, especially in the pool area. In China, there are 61-million left-behind children. 40% are under age 5 and 70% of those left-behind children do not get to see their parents annually. Many parents leave their children to earn money. So their children are growing up without parents' love. This is really easy to cause mental illness.
This stop motion is showing this phenomenon by using a heart to represent. From a colorful heart to a black heart means the motion change for those children. Around the heart is some words represent that what children really need with their family during the time they grow up.
