Three Little Pigs

Three Little Pigs

Reinterpretation of classic fairy tale 'Three Little Pigs'.

I started with an intention of exploring the narrative potential of common objects. I wanted to create an intuitively understandable sequence without descriptive text. Beginning with an idea of resemblance between buttonhole and pig snout, I placed an original story in sewing world. Scissors became scary wolf and threads, pins and fabrics became houses of three pigs.

For more lifelike expression of characters, I add movement to characters and made it as stop motion animation as well as picture book.
