Quirky Hand-Drawn Characters Come to Life by Illustrator ‘Yoyo the Ricecorpse’ a.k.a 木匣子与圆脸兔’

Blending her original photography with hand-drawn illustrations in Photoshop, animator Yoyo the Ricecorpse creates quirky ghost-like characters that live in a world where anime meets Roger Rabbit. Each animation is limited to a single animated GIF that sees her doughy characters living in teapots or lounging around urban backdrops in photos taken from Yoyo’s travels to Tokyo.

Recently out of school, Yoyo now works full-time as an illustrator and animator in London and has transformed many of her characters into an assortment of shirts, pins, buttons and other objects available in her Etsy shop. She is also working on an animated music video that should be out soon. You can follow more of her work on Instagram and Behance.

I think these are great. If only I were as proficient in animation as Miss Yoyo The Ricecorpse  That’s me undergoing a failed performance art/garden project in the middle of Albert Park. I should have better spent my time learning how to animate. I guess the next best thing is the augmented-reality game Pokémon GO.
