Film Synopsis: A suicidally depressed pixie girl seeks to end it all but finds herself reincarnated as the cat of a lethargic pickle man, forcing her to try to find the meaning of her existence.

Artists Statement: The Reincarnation of Puke Pixie is a personal project. After losing several family members in a short time span, I was inspired to explore different philosophies of life, death, and the purpose of existence. The design of my characters and backgrounds are intentionally wonky and messy, as I feel this reflects what it’s like inside my brain. The animated short is an allegorical autobiography of sorts, as it expresses the coping strategies and challenges I faced while coming to terms with grief in my own way. The film is meant to be dark, funny and absurd.
