I made this portrait during quarantine to submit it as part of my application to the animation program at the California State Summer School of the Arts. It’s a self portrait inspired by little doodles I used to draw on my hands and the feeling of looking inward and seeing yourself decay. Also the title is a reference to the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas.
