the malicious thief
creative direction, illustration
Following from the publication of the Marvellous Birds Anthology, Story Factory contacted me to help turn four selected short stories into illustrated and voice-acted short films. For each story I illustrated between 13-16 major frames/beats, some with small looping animations. The illustrations were then adapted by Story Factory’s editor, Marcus Khoudair, into animated videos.
These illustrations are for The Malicious Thief, written by Minh. The other projects in this series are Fredrico Saint Hidoka, The Bird in the Antique Shop, and Bryan.
