Linda Shaw is a well know Astrologer, these were some illustrations I made for her. Each one well researched and sketched based on the story behind the signs themselves. The Pisces symbol with a string in the mouth etc. This goes deeper than mere pictures. With each illustration as closely based on the true meaning as possible.
Sadly... The project was cut short and the animations were never completed. Nevertheless... The ones I managed to get to came out more than perfect. Taking my inspiration from Tatoo-esque designs and adding my own spin on them. Linda is a well-known figure in the digital world for her articles and daily horoscopes.
The work was done for her new youtube channel and designed in such a way that they can easily be imported into after effects and turned into pleasing animations.
Seeing the process unfold is always a pleasing aspect. For that very reason... I have dedicated this section just to sketches and pre-planning. This shows the entire process from start to finish.
The below images were the final results. Illustrations were done in layers to assure easy import into a motion graphics program for future animation work. Each one styled and colorized to suit it's message and original symbolic background.
