Mythical Mondays

In July of 2014 I started a year long personal challenge to celebrate my adoration for all things mythical. The goal: create one animated gif a week of an interesting, folkloric creature.  

Each Monday, for one year, I released a new animation under the name Mythical Monday. Creatures range from the ubiquitous vampire to the obscure rokurokubi and well into the internet phenomena, Slender Man. The project was a challenge that tested my consistency every week.

For a glimpse into my process check out my blog post about it, How To Make  Mythical Monday.

The video above is a collection of all fifty-two gifs strung together for a quick view. You can find more process sketches and see each myth independently on Instagram.
