2D animation made for college art class

For George Mason's AVT 382 (Experimental 2D Animation) class, I made this animation as my final class project. My experience with 2D animation was limited coming into the class (I had previously only animated using my Nintendo DS years ago) but I was able to teach myself Blender Grease Pencil and make three animations, this animation being the last. Inspired by Twin Peaks and a couple dreams I had, I made this animation with the goal of combining cartoonish humor and horror elements. I was able to use my laptop as a touch screen and hand-draw much of the animation's visuals, with some of the visuals actually being 3D or generated using particle systems. I really enjoyed using my creativity to make this fun little animation!
