Design lab artists Jesse Mcmanus and John Malta joined forces to produce a new transfixing 2D animation of original work made for the writer James Gendron’s newest book of poems, Weirde Sister.
WEIRDE SISTER is a historical epic tragedy in verse based on beliefs and narratives dating to the European witch persecutions, which unfolded over three centuries and claimed an estimated 50,000. It is a long poem on the subject of witches, witchcraft, witch persecutions, and whether Hell is really as hot as they say.
