Amazing masks and trippy animations from Shishi Yamazaki

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Making one drawing a day is a common project to get yourself into the habit of regular illustration after a period of anti-creativity (I’m looking at you, Christmas). Shishi Yamazaki has taken this process a step further with her creepy, romantic series of masks — one drawn every day for an ongoing period of time. Abstract, lucid and seriously intriguing, this is the sort of project we love. It’s a simple idea with a surprising and beautiful result! If you’re into Studio Ghibli films or just good animation, check out some of her videos too. This is one seriously talented girl.
