Currently based in the UK, Chinese illustrator and motion designer Yukai Du recently released An Anthology Vol. 1, a series comprised of ten GIF animations. Eschewing the vibrant colors of her past commercial and editorial works, the talented artist relied on the use of many fewer colors mainly a palette dominated by blues and oranges for this project.
"In publishing, the word 'anthology' is usually used for a collection of literary works like poems, short stories, songs, etc. In this video, I created a collection of short animated images, each of them could be a piece of thinking, a scene of a dream, an imagination from a poet or a nonsense thought. I keep doing these small pieces when I have some time, here are the first 10 images and therefore I edited it as Volume 1."
