Lauren Gregory photographs her improvisational finger paintings every few strokes. In an interview with The Creators Project, Gregory described her time working with collective Aboveground Animation as an eye-opener:
“Being surrounded by other animators like Casey and Jacolby Satterwhite who have such strong voices was inspiring. Those guys aren’t afraid to be irreverant or let their sense of humor shine through. Some artists are funny people in private, but when it comes to their work, they get really serious and strip it of any personality. I think I used to do that before, and Aboveground Animation made me remember that my personality is an asset, not something to polish or hide in my paintings.”
Fortunately for us, that translates to GIFs such as “Dickmatized,” which is a really lovely painting of a dick swinging around. Check it out after the jump.
