Violet & June
Violet and June is a queer romantic comedy about "falling in love, the terror of being alive in a cold heartless universe, and the comfort of a best friend who will make you laugh about butts."
I worked with the talented creative director and visionary behind Violet and June, Linnea Ritland, to develop the animation style as well as several art props used in this short film.
Since its premiere screening, Violet & June has gone on to win several awards and accolades.
