Ideas for flipbooks in the memory of Dough’s mind. I would like to explore Dough’s child memories based on his creativity as a child dealing with the shame that is inflicted upon him by his emasculating mother, weak father, and the fact that he is an only child. Seeking comfort and escapism, and trying to find a sense of reason and logic behind crippling shame by depicting out scenarios in the format of flipbooks.
