Artist Reimagines Shadows Into Quirky Characters –
The inspiration for the illustrated works of Belgian filmmaker and illustrator Vincent Bal come from the shadows cast by everyday objects and detritus from the world around him. Bits of trash and spare items from his home are reimagined as curvy outlines for a cast of characters that range from a young girl in a rainstorm to DJ in his flow. Other items, like a textured glass, create the perfect sun-spotted water for a backyard pool. Bal is currently in production for a live-action film that incorporates his shadow drawings called Shadowology. You can support the creation of the film on Cinecrowd, and see more of his animations on Instagram. Bal also offers prints of his illustrations on Etsy.
