It’s not often you see something truly amazing in the realm of animation, but I had to stop and watch when these felt wool based animations scrolled through my feed a couple weeks ago. Andrea Love is a stop motion animator based in Port Townsend, Washington and creates her animations primarily from needle felted wool with astonishing results. She recently launched a kickstarter to co-direct an 8-minute short based on the Thumbelina story called “Tulip” along with children’s book author and illustrator, Phoebe Wahl. It made its funding goal, so they are off to work finishing the animation. You can view some of Andrea’s existing work, and also follow along as she animates “Tulip” through her instagram account, andreaanimates. Below are some of my favorites from her account.
