Kids Depict Evolution In Adorable Crayon Animation
Our Adorable Past
Thank you Tyler Rhodes for asking a group of children from Patrick Henry School of Science and Art to draw 100 creatures, and then animate it. Throw in some precious sound effects from the kids and you’ve got a winner! Rhodes writes on his blog, “I mainly do animations, but most any art interests me, especially if it has some connection to science or natural forms. I also like the idea of using animation as a tool, and not merely as a form of entertainment, and to perhaps, in some small way, impart knowledge to the viewer.” It may not be the most scientific depiction but Rhodes did put the drawings through six “generations” by destroying some and seeing how they would develop the next time around, so it is it’s own evolution.
