I am a Skillshare member and love all the tutorial videos on the website about art, design, animation and many other creative endeavours. This illustration and animation was a result of two Skillshare projects. The first project was to create a retro inspired vector postcard design about a city of my choice in Adobe Illustrator and the second project was to create a looped animated gif video in Adobe After Effects and Photoshop.
I really liked the idea of creating an illustration about my current home town in the future. What would the city look like? Would the buildings be different? Halifax, Nova Scotia is home to the oldest running transit ferry that carries passengers from one side of the city’s harbour to the other so I knew that I wanted to incorporate that into the project. Then I got the idea that in the future it wouldn’t just be a boat anymore, it would be able to fly.
The illustration was also one of my postcard designs featured on my 100 Postcards Project page.
