Raw Data, Hand-Drawn Animation by Jake Fried

A figure evolves through a frenetic series of transformations in the incredible hand-drawn animation “Raw Data” by Jake Fried. The Boston-based animator uses an unusual technique to make his animations: rather than draw each frame on its own sheet of paper, Fried uses white out, paint, ink, and coffee to layer the frames on top of a single sheet of paper. By the time the final frame has been added, the sheet of paper is covered with a couple of inches of material. For more animations by Jake Fried, see our posts on “The Deep End” and a selection of Fried’s earlier works.
