“One Loop Portrait a Week” is a challenge to himself to create a looped animated portrait each week since last September. He says about the project: “As far as the intention of the series, it’s a way for me to explore a hybrid medium, experiment and being spontaneous while still sticking to a short weekly deadline. There isn’t a common concept between each loop, I just ‘go with the flow’ and see what comes to my mind each week.” And we’re glad to see the project is still ongoing, with its bizarre and laugh-out-loud results.
