preen tapped the talents of stankovic who based the animations on anatomical illustrations of moths and other insects, combining a measure of accuracy with an enchanting style. each one has been created with a combination of watercolors, colored pencils and post-editing in photoshop. it was then printed using lenticular printing, a technique where the image gives an illusion of depth and movement when viewed from different angles.
