Communities of pushpins, pencils and erasers at odds with each other, trees that hug all day — animation director and writer Sean Charmatz (@sean_charmatz) breathes life into everyday sights. “The idea is that if you look close enough and take a moment to observe, you will see all of this,” says Sean. “To me, there is magic in seeing a story that was already happening between objects. I feel the magic, so believe others will too.”
Growing up, Sean, now 36, was drawn to the characters and letters of graffiti in big cities like San Francisco and New York. Today, his work as an animation director and writer allows him to tap into that childhood joy and share it with others. “It means a lot to me that people enjoy the work and that it has changed the way they look at the world,” he says. “I want my account to be a place where everyone can feel creative and be inspired.”
