I was inspired by my work with pixel animation and ascii typewriter animation to try a similiar low rez craft technique: Cross Stitch Animation.

I developed a new approach to create this short holiday greeting, moving the pixel design into this softer, more cozy handmade x-stitch direction.

It’s a look that shows promise for future projects.
