DESIGNED BY KETURAH ARIEL
Giphy.com was doing an article on the beauty and differences of natural kinky hair and commissioned a few artists to create gifs based on this conceptual idea. Keturah was one of the chosen artist and decide to create gifs with the following concepts:
1. Picking out your afro 2. Doing a big chop 3. Styling your baby hair
This was Keturah’s first attempt at animating her artwork and her assistant Kiara used Adobe Photoshop timeline to layer and correct the timing of the animated illustrations. Giphy displayed them on their website and the images were also featured on Essence.com as well as a few other sites.
The GIF’s were illustrated and animated in Adobe Photoshop CC using a Wacom Cintiq tablet.
