I love Houdini and I love illustration, specifically hand drawn animations.
This animation is about holding on to something very tightly (maybe too tight?) which is in the process of changing.
The creation process is very similar to "How are you, REALLY".
I created the swirly ball in Houdini and drew the rest in Procreate.
Any questions -> PLEASE ask!
