Hello all, thank you for your generous feedback.

This animation started with the vague idea of pulling a rabbit out of a hat, and it somehow evolved into what it is.

On the technical-how, this was made in Corel Painter using the file type called "Movie" which supports the drawing of multiple "frames" in a single file. The software has an "onion skin" feature that allows me to draw on top of the previous frame. For this animation, I started with 5 frames and ended with drawing 37 frames. I selected the play back to be at 8 Frame-per-second, and output the result using Animated Gif format. It was fun seeing how the drawings came alive.
