Daehyun Kim (moonassi) is a great illustrator from south Korean. I love his work, because his work deliver such strong emotion, even they are still images, but people who look at his drawing, they can feel they are telling a story. I also use black and white style in my final project, he has inspired me with his unique emotional graphic style. Here is a work by him, he use simple techniques connect still drawings to lively story. He call this form is drawing opera. they looks like ancient murals/wall drawing. This video is very strong, it seems like those character telling their own story.
And is great stop motion animation which he said is inspire by Samuel Beckett’s play ‘Waiting for Godot’
I am researching inspired black and white films, here is the one I REALLY LIKE.I am not good at dealing with the relationship between light and shadows. This piece animation is great learning source. And I also like the narrative of it, it’s slow telling and very touched.
The story is about disappearance of a forest. I really like the concept , it presents a big universal environment issue through one normal man’s view, and on the other hand, the concept can be understand as we lose things little by little because we thought we have a lot and didn’t treat it well.
