This was kind of fancy. I drew the statue (about 2'x3') in graphite. Then I cut out 300 silhouettes of birds from blue construction paper, in two different sizes and six different positions. I animated them by substituting each cutout in the next frame with the next bird shape in the flight pattern. I managed to get them to go behind the statue by cutting out its outline with an exacto knife. The animating itself took about six hours.

In other news, my social life is thriving.
