Winter Solstice

A collaborative commission from Esh print risography studio for a promotional calendar illustrated by 12 artists. 

Month of December was my choice since it's my birthday month. I love December because the 21st is the turning point when the days start becoming longer again — the sun's death and rebirth, according to mythology. 

I did a comic with 31 frames that shows this death and rebirth of the sun character on day 21. Once the artwork was completed I also turned it into a small looped animation.
