The Shadey Journey
What started as a rather dry pun for my art account on Instagram a long time ago, is a name that I proudly wear today; I am the Shadey Artist. I started out as a Digital Illustrator, and expanded into Graphic Design, Video Editing, Sound Design and now Motion Graphics.

'Beyond' involves a futuristic concept with flying orbs and gravity defying architecture, but in fact is more of a reflective piece to me, that best puts across my feelings towards things that I consider obstacles in life. At any point, the subject seems to be the only thing in focus until one zooms out/meanders away and sees the bigger picture, which there always is. There is a lot more beyond what one feels like a big thing engulfing their life at the moment, positive or negative.
In a way, 'Beyond' is what lies in the unknown, something a human like me is usually blissfully unaware of.

'The Institute' is a title sequence of the thriller novel by Stephen King, which was published in 2019. I tried making the most use of stock images edited in a way that creates an intriguing and mysterious tone. It is heavy on audio sensitive visuals and rhythmic editing, paired with a minimalistic style of typography.
