WE ARE SMOKERS
A journey from the house to the bus stop.
WE ARE SMOKERS is a short animation inspired by the city I was living in, Hong Kong, where smoking is considered part of its culture. Wherever one goes, someone will have a lit cigarette. This animation addresses how secondhand smoke is just as harmful as direct smoke, making us practically all smokers.
Initial Character Design
I experimented with different styles before getting my final one.
Eventually, I decided on a geometric character. Then I simplified it to the point where the facial features were removed to create a more abstract representation of a person.
