A series of animated illustrations/GIFs for ✏︎ an article created on ✏︎ The Pudding. The visual essay is a deep dive "what 20,000 letters to an advice columnist tell us about what—and who—concerns us most.".
The close collaboration with front end developers allowed me to create animated illustration that use parallax scroll as an additional mean of visual narration besides just the animated GIF itself.
The article header shows Abby typing her column on her typewriter. As the viewer scrolls down to start reading the article, the perspective changes and Abby almost disappears behind the piles, creating a simple but efficient three-dimensional space.
Besides the two animated illustrations using the parallax scroll as a narrative mean, the article features three more animated illustrations that go along more "Dear Abby" letters.
This spot goes along a "Dear Abby" letter in which a wife describes her own jealousy over her husband's growing affection of their pet monkey. Through the parallax scroll, the wife's body moves upwards, out behind the couch from where she is peeking on her husband and the monkey.
