The New York Times
An animation to accompany the New York Times' annual 'Holiday Books' supplement. Here's what books get up to when we step out of the room.
I made some print illustrations, one for the supplement cover featuring a wild office party at the library, and two more inside for cookery and travel.
We also created an infinitely looping version, to amuse ourselves:
