Kaboom Animation Festival poster 2023

Yaaaay…. we can finally share the poster with you! Here it is! Designed by the amazing Leyla Ali, our illustrator we are now working with for the 3rd year in a row. She tells the story behind the poster in her very own words:

💖 Leyla: “It’s about the ultimate acceptance and non-apologetic love for one’s own body. For me, this represents a woman being completely comfortable with her body image. There is also distortion in the perspective that makes it look like an eye where the waves and clouds play the role of the eyelashes. I didn’t want to make it too obvious, so it’s more of a hidden gem or a visual trick. This refers back to the concept of ‘inner acceptance.’ Think of it like this: “I have this beautiful imaginary island where the naked version of myself lays down on a beach feeling free from anxiety and fears of what society wants to shape me in. I am looking at the world through the lense of me being the most comfortable and free version of myself.”
