MEET THE ARTISTS
ERIC SCOTT FISCHER, Morris, IL
Artist, animator, illustrator and filmmaker from the Chicago area. Eric studied film and video at Columbia College in Chicago and has been freelancing in illustration, design, animation and film/video for 20 years. His films are made by using a mix of traditional and digital tools, often starting out as pencil on paper or colored cells shot underneath a variety of cameras. The juxtaposition of fast-moving images and shapes allows color to have a freedom of expression and feeling, letting the images destroy themselves under layer upon layer of separately animated images.
