I'm really proud of this video edit that I made from my storyboards. I added the sound effects myself and there's music from the movie. The text is all from the novel itself.
I decided to pay homage to one of my biggest inspirations by doing an illustration. Porter Robinson recently released an animation from his collaboration song with Madeon, titled, "Shelter". I've linked the animation below, check it out because it's beautiful.
Here's a quick step-by-step of how I illustrated my interpretation of the video.
"An intimate look at Porter Robinson."
Still my favorite artist and a brilliant person.
I recently had the opportunity to see Porter live at EZOO with my best friend, Russell. I really love Porter and this was truly one of the most emotional experiences I've ever had. We were there specifically to see Porter, but the whole ambiance was like a beautiful dream. Porter's aesthetic resonates with me mainly because it's about a longing for a lost world; it's also vaguely anime inspired and filled with nostalgia.
There are some videos of the experience, but you can't capture the atmosphere of hundreds of people singing along, bursts of flames, projections and the imagery. This was also the last time he'll be playing Worlds, so that made it even more impactful. He'll be touring again at the end of September, but I'm so happy to have seen him play Worlds live.
I'll say also that I was hesitant to go because I've been so busy with everything and concerts can be pretty intimidating. Luckily, I went. For me, the concert really felt like the culmination of a long Summer of hard work. If you have the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and go do something that you want to, go and do it.
