John AKA Elvis Aaron Presley / The Old Man with the Typewriter

‘The Old Man with the Typewriter' celebrates John an individual with schizophrenia. This animation gives a greater understanding of the disorder by showcasing John’s creative writing. John’s poems, stories and thoughts use powerful description, metaphors, humour and darkness to give a unique insight into living with schizophrenia.

This animation was produced as part of a body of work under the title 'John AKA Elvis Aaron Presley' for my BDES (Hons) Graphic Design Project.
