I’m bored. Bored of social media, Bored of making work for an imaginary audience. Bored of chasing views and making content just for the sake of it. So I stopped. And I have spent the last two months in my studio drawing in my sketchbook, turning those drawings into paintings and animating them. And uploading none of them to social media, here is a peek at a new project of mine that is helping me love creating again.

It’s called BENIASHI, and it starts with a sketchbook

I took those sketches and I turned them into art.

If you have watched this story you are one of only a few who have seen these works, they are very personal to me and are the beginning of a new art project and way of creating for me and I am very excited for the future, feel free to let me know what you think below! Thank you B E N I A S H I

    Hay! What a amazing work. Can you tell me that apps you use to make a gif like that ?

    @anastasyacandic hey I use photoshop to do frame animation, like the blinking eyes, and after effects to do any other looping animated background, I learned how to use these apps from YouTube tutorials.
