The idea came to me while working on cutout animation, where you should achieve a convincing pose from cutouts that resemble any full line drawing, and it will still be easier to build a pose from cutouts then develop it into full line sketch. So I started by scribbling some cutouts-like doodles, and then rebuilt them into full sketches. The main target was to realign your cutouts into convincing poses for animation, it's like the wooden doll that can impress the audience moving its joints.

It was pretty tough, though inspiring to come with two stories out from two poems, or words on paper. It was very much more tricky than ordinary illustration of a scenario . But finally I came up with something that maybe could not translate the same figurative images, but some how my own conception and understanding of what I read. Now still there's the effort from the audience to re-translate my own pictures back to their origin. The challenge mainly was to depict the images in a poem talks about anxiety and how recognition leads to sad truth. And another poem by German poet, Rilke's, "Archaic Torso of Apollo". And of course, to try adding the element of creativity.

I drew this animation on two papers. I didn't use the usual way of animation; that is drawing every frame on a separate paper, instead I drew about six drawings or frames on each paper beside each others. I imagined the limbs of the horse as if they are coming out of two balls; every two limbs are coming out of each ball...this made it easy to create the movement...after deciding the movement of the limbs of one ball I synchronized the movement of the other ball with it as follows: when the right rear leg is down on the ground the right foreleg will be floating, and that's apply to the other side.
