Medium: (2D digital animation)
In this short, experimental 2D animation, a dog-creature struggles with the idiosyncrasies of their personality(s) across multiple planes of existence.
Dog-creature, or Mr. Nibbles, lives by the rules. He is governed by an existence confined within his little body, within a little room. But he always has himself. From the outside Mr. Nibbles leads a mundane life, but he is pure chaos within. Creature(s) of Habit explores ones internal workings, with Mr. Nibbles and his surroundings growing increasingly inundated as different sides of his selfhood emerge. Time is speeding up for Mr. Nibbles, but his old habits have a way of repeating themselves…indefinitely. He’s a little directionless, self-destructive, definitely too hard on himself, and overall overwhelmed by the world.
