This was a personal project, the daydreams while isolating during the lonely COVID-19 pandemic.
Like so many others, I longed for those feelings of awe and wonder that come with experiencing new places. While I do love spending time at home and finding joy in the familiar, I missed that curiosity and felt wistful for all these places I hadn't seen yet. So I turned this into my own escape.
From the narrow alleyways of Tokyo, a quiet mountaintop on the Faroe Islands, an ornate riad in Fez, seeing the sky dotted with balloons in Cappadocia, or riding through vast landscapes on the Trans-Siberian rail, my mind wandered to many far flung corners. I lovingly illustrated each scene and animated an element to bring these scenes to life.
