Character designs for The Ocean Duck, illustrated by Kasia Doszla
Illustrator Kasia Doszla designed an illuminated manuscript look in this film style frame.
A woman visits her ailing grandmother in a hospital during a flood, bringing back fond memories of the past – spilling over into fantastical visions in the present – as an ancient tale comes to life.
About the Film:
Alluding to an allegory by Persian poet Rumi, The Ocean Duck is a 2D animated short film and a modern re-telling through the genre of magical realism — with an aesthetic of early Middle Eastern painted and illuminated manuscripts.
