First Horseman

I’m working on the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The Horse and the Man use the same 64-pointed shape as the Cathedral, Wing, Eye, Beast Head, Rose Window, etc. Because they’re the same object, I made this little 2-frame test in which they alternate – essentially a Thaumatrope. It’s just an experiment, but maybe I’ll use this effect for reals somewhere.

  1. In AA…I’m in recovery…the four horsemen are compared to Terror, Bewilderment, Frustration and Despair. I love your work, BTW. Thanks for putting yourself out there.
