From my project based on traditional dolls and figures from around the world, this illustration is inspired by the Japanese Daruma doll.
Daruma dolls are considered to be symbolic talismans, given as gifts to encourage luck and perseverance. The dolls are bought with blank eyes - the recipient paints one eye in to signify a goal or wish. The second eye is painted upon fulfilling the goal. The one-eyed Daruma serves as a reminder to focus on what you wish to achieve.
I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!
Rebecca is amazing!
