Animation Friday: Jennifer Levonian

Jennifer Levonian is a Philadelphia-based artist who makes great, beautiful, clunky animations from her hand-cut watercolor paintings. This laborious process gives a richness as well as an endearing awkwardness that is lost more and more with the prevalence of digital animation tools. Most of her films have an autobiographical bent to them, but some take on a more whimsical air such as The Figure in the Carpet below.
