They say a picture can speak a thousand words and sometimes we just need one to remind us how beautiful life really is. These animated illustrations will do just that for anyone!
Japanese illustrator Maori Sakai is brilliant at creating charming scenes with messages such as, “Take it easy,” and “Happiness is by your side,” and then animating them. The positive messages coupled with the motion of elements work in harmony to remind us about all the good things. Sakai’s illustrations are fuelled by youthful atmospheres that stem from her earliest days of drawing as a child. Citing the idea that happiness can be found everywhere, she says, “I think most people depend on others or a lot of money to feel this happiness, but I think, happiness is always a state of mind.” How very true!
