Stranger Things Fan Art - Joyce Byers Animated Illustration

So, amidst all the Pok√©mon Go talk lately (ah yeayuh), you've probably heard people talking about the new Netflix show 'Stranger Things'... or me, you've guzzled down the entire series in a matter of days. 

I'm a big fan of tv shows like this. Think: Twin Peaks, X-Files and Fringe mixed with films like Super 8 or The Goonies. Mystery, yup! 80s nostalgia, yup! Brilliant characters, yup! Just..yes. 

So after I'd finished the series, I couldn't help but sketch some of the characters. I'm not kidding when I say I sketched pretty much the entire main cast, and hopefully I'll be able to show you those at some point, but in a first things first kind of way I was struck with the idea of taking Winona Ryder's character: Joyce Byers into a final illustration and then on into gif format.

If you've followed my work you'll know that I love to dip into working with simple animation when I can, and the flashing light theme in Stranger Things lends itself perfectly to that. This was a quick one, so it is simple, but it's had such a brilliant response across social media. That's what I love about getting the chance to work on fan art, the mass of connection and the "Hey! You like that show too!"s that grow from it - it makes you feel like you just met a whole team of people on your wavelength.

So - hopefully I'll put up a few more of the illustrations in the coming days/weeks and animated them if they lend themselves to that. In the meantime, I'm going to get some lunch and wish I had eggos.
