Artist Statement

Inspired by comedy anime and internet memes, Jessica Brown's work consists primarily of short meme animations. She grew up watching gag anime and memes on Youtube, and that type of lighthearted but zany humor is very present in her videos. Even though Jessica's animations tend to have no deeper meaning than just being funny, she still hopes to some day be able to make a positive impact through her work.

Jessica's animation process begins with brainstorming a punchline. She usually lets her mind wander with a joke, trying to think of how to best build up to it, and then begins making an animatic in Clip Studio Paint. While working on the animatic, Jessica comes up with even more scenes and tries them out as she works. Though her works are typically the opposite of serious, she does try to be mindful of the perspective, timing, and camerawork of the video to make sure that the story can be visually comprehensive and also engaging.

Jessica has previously made videos and GIFs in Adobe Photoshop, Animate, After Effects, and Clip Studio Paint, but has been using Clip Studio for her work near exclusively for the past year.
