Animation week 2 – Animation Artist Post
The artist I selected from panimation.tv is Hailley Furkalo from Winnipeg, Canada.
Hailley is a multidisciplinary animator/designer with a body of work consist of 2D animation done in various mediums.
Hailley’s 2D animations have variations in their texture ranging from vector based graphics, stop motion, to hand drawn style animations. What’s consistent across her works are the clean and simplistic shapes which are comfortable to look at and often have a soft outline along with just the right amount of cartoon distortion that makes the subjects in her animation seem cute and friendly.
Hailley’s animation strikes a good balance between having a clean look to convey the message yet still having enough colors and texture to make the subjects look dynamic and approachable. Those characteristics worked especially well in the animated commercial she created for a food recipe app.
