An Ex-Disney Animator’s Years-Long, Touching Tribute to His Late Wife
As a happily-married father of two kids, former Disney animator Gary Andrews began doodling in a journal to chronicle the joy of family life. A few years later, his wife, Joy, died suddenly of sepsis. Andrews continued to draw in it as a means of coping with his loss. In this short animation, we see the intimate journey of a husband and children whose lives were turned upside-down by grief. The doodles are a poignant tribute to his late wife, and also the power of perseverance.
