CNN Love in Conflict - Karl's letter
Over the past year, CNN has collected letters written between loved ones who have been in the path of past and present hostilities.
I had the opportunity to design and animate Karl's letter. One out of five letters from CNN's series Love in Conflict. ​​​​​​​


In 2011, Marine Lieutenant Karl Kurbikoff was sent on his first deployment to Afghanistan.
His wife, Lisa, was at home taking care of their son, Alex, while pregnant with their second child. During the many months he was away, Karl wrote Lisa a letter.
In the letter Karl wrote about how being in danger was worth it, if it meant that his family could have a happy life. Shortly after sending the letter Karl’s vehicle hit a 70-pound improvised explosive device.
Extraordinarily, he survived the explosion, but temporarily lost his sight and hearing. His sight has returned, but he is deaf in his left ear and still suffers from headaches. Karl stayed in the Marine Corps and has since been promoted to captain.
