This is a hand-drawn flash animation about a dragonfly, King Dragonfly. He grows on each trip down the underground mazes on his cylindrical elevator until finally he grows wings and flies away, turning the planet 3 dimensional (symbolizing things becoming real). It is meant to reflect on how through travel we grow up and get a bigger perspective.
The music is by an awesome electronic artist called Susumu Yokota and the song is called King Dragonfly. I actually imagined this clip while listening to the song on a plane and reproduced what I day dreamed as closely as possible in a series of pastel drawings (yes, it was all yellow colored) and those drawings are the basis of this animation.
I hope you enjoy King Dragonfly!
Also, a big shout out to anyone watching from Australia!
