I Can Feel It In My Bones – Short Video

I CAN FEEL IT IN MY BONES is an animated short exploring themes of motivation and experience by following a woman searching for purpose as she finds herself confronted with the potential of change. Unsatisfied with her life as a studio photographer, the woman chooses to follow after a giant. Years pass as she follows. Certain that this is the path to fulfilment, she persists until one evening when she meets a dog and her notion of purpose is challenged.

Profile Picture Project by Patrick Girouard

A little over a year ago I made a small painting of a pirate and posted it on my Facebook profile in honor of Talk Like A Pirate Day. The next day I changed it to a cowboy, and the day after that a mummy. It was kind of fun and my friends were responding positively, so I continued with a hipster, a mime, a fly, a robot… and then someone asked, “Are you going to do a new one every day?” And I said, “Yes. 365 of them, every day for a year.”
