A series of animations, each 15 seconds long, was released on the website of the fashion brand 45R every month for a year from September 2019 to August 2020. The soft and transparent watercolor washes and brushwork depicted seasonal scenes such as falling leaves, year-end cleaning, New Year’s, cherry blossoms, and cooling off in summer evenings, along with the daily lives of a man and a woman, expressing the joy of living a life with seasonal outfits.
