Lenticulicious

I’m exploring custom lenticular prints of loops from ApocalypseAnimated.com. I still don’t have them in hand; the first tests arrive in hand next week. Here’s a preview video from the printer of the design below:

Four Horsemen

But I’m so excited I’m already setting up designs for 6 more, to make a set of 7 lenticular prints (7 seems to be the most fetishized number in the Book of Revelation). Because I want to look at them adjacent to each other, I’m posting them here!

One on the Throne
The Number of the Beast
Woman and Dragon
Temple Smoke
Abaddon Fire
Whore of Babylon
Tree of Life

These loops are all 8 frames (except the Throne and Temple Smoke) because the more frames interlaced into a lenticular, the blurrier it gets. I really won’t know how or whether these designs will work until they’re interlaced, printed, and sealed under a ridged piece of plastic called a lens. Also there are 8 here, not 7, so one of them will eventually be excluded.

  1. I understand from your comments about ENCANTO and POWER OF THE DOG that you don’t watch many movies, but I wanted to write anyway to say that I think you’ll like TURNING RED, which is currently on Disney+.

    Aside from just liking the film a lot, it strikes me the way your work does, as pretty much the work and point of view of a single mind, considering things of interest to her in ways that enlarged my understanding of the world from watching it.

    best,

  2. OMG These are magnificent! I can only imagine how you would creatively craft Kabbalistic works and stories such as Ezekiel’s vision, the 4 rabbis that went through the pardes, the Bahir, the Shiur Qomah, and so much more!
