fifty ways to wank

Commissioned work, 2021

Agnes Boman and I were commissioned by the poet Hollie McNish to make an animation for her poem fifty ways to wank, presented in her book titled Slug: and other things I’ve been told to hate

This animation was used as a promotional video in connection with the release of Hollie McNish’s new book.

The poem is a celebration of female masturbation: aiming to remove the stigma surrounding the topic. 

This animation was digitally hand-drawn frame by frame. Me and Agnes Boman worked carefully to merge our 
illustration styles together to make the scenes we
animated blend well after one another. We decided on a mostly black and white colour palette to make our sparing use of color stand out and hold focus.
