Red balloon

Happy day! I made my first animated image! It is a very simple one (and the balloon looks a bit slow and bumpy) - BUT.  I am SO excited to bring life to my little stories i had to share it.

At the same time it gives you a tiny peek at the next story i will be working on; This time i tried doing a few illustrations with acrylic paint rather than pencils, and i find the colors are richer and a lot more intense. I really like it.

The story is about a boy who has a secret; One day he blows his secret into a red balloon and lets it disappear into the sky... except that the balloon eventually start losing air, and with it... the precious words.
Now i am sure you all want to know what his secret is... (he he)
