I used this hexagonal tessellation pattern in the background because they remind me of daffodils.
Instead of calling this a time lapse video showing my work in progress, this video is actually the work itself. While the girl and the cat are fixed in one position permanently in the book, I have tucked the rest of the cut-outs I made for the animation into the back pocket of Jennifer's book. Anyone can take them out to play... (or use, if you want).
(the texts don't really appear in the book; they've been added on using photoshop.)
girl: I am a garlic.
There is an old Chinese saying that when a daffodil doesn't bloom (水仙不開花) it is pretending to be a garlic (裝蒜).
p.s. a tour guide once told me that the Welsh term for daffodil is Cenhinen Bedr (Peter's leek), hence the title to this entry. (hats off to Rowland~)
