The typical turn-around time for any script at Manta Ray is 60 - 90 days. Max. Aindri came on board the Manta Ray team last August, and over the next 8 months, she went on to create something like we have never seen before. And what she created over these 200 odd days, is, to put it simply, mind-blowing.
From the first mail she wrote to us... we were stunned by Aindri's vision for the story we wrote for her, and man.. it IS something. We have not seen anything like this... is it comics, is it art, is it illustration? It's all of this.
Clue 2 of the contest shows 2 soldiers silently moving through a dense, green forest. This was an easy-to-crack clue - the (disjointed) equation on the soldier's chest reads "45 - 33 = ". All one had to do was look closely.
Aindri's ilustration blog Pipilika showcases her very radical thought process and illustration style. She was commissioned by Google to create a theme for the Chrome browser and you can see some of her animation videos here. (our favourite is her conversation with her father)
You can also see one of her work-in-progress pages from her TWELVE story here.
Aindri studied Animation at the National Institute of Design and is now doing her MA in Illustration at Central Saint Martins, London.
