animation sample

So I have been talking about my animation for a while now. I have never shown it in public yet. So here goes nothing! This was a test animation for a film short I am working on for a solo show in March at the Hollywood Art & Culture Center in Hollywood, FL. I am not using anything close to this now, but the animation style is the same. Just wanted to show a very short preview of my style.
