The importance of personal projects can never be overstated. I started ABDZ almost 10 years ago and I have learned so much since then. The project that Mark Pearson shared on his Behance page is a good example of exercising skills to improve and learn more about our craft. He played with dots and clever motion design to create super cool animations. I am sure those will be useful for him in the future.
Paper Craft Animations by Cris Wiegandt
We have been posting about paper craft artworks quite ofter here on Abduzeedo. Perhaps, these kind of work might bring us back childhood memories, who never created paper objects? The work that Cris Wiegandt does goes beyond that. The animations, the details and the cuteness on some of her work is simply awesome. Today we want to share some examples of that and also a little case study of the Nickelodeon Kindernet work she did.
The Brazilian-born artist Cris Wiegandt who has lived in Hamburg and Barcelona and now lives in Berlin calls herself a craft queen. She creates worlds out of colored paper, in which a space shuttle arise, catamarans glide through the see or Lady Darth Vader fights against a platform shoe - and sometimes this crafts are in motion.
