It’s always great to see an author-made animation. This one has a delightfully down-home, improvisational feel, but it’s obviously very carefully thought-out; the sudden intrusion of the animator’s hands is genius. The Taos, New Mexico-based writer Johanna DiBiase specializes in fiction, but judging from her website bio is something of a Renaissance woman.
