For my final project, I’d like to create a cute, simple, and clean animation with an interactive touchpoint- perhaps by pressing certain keys or clicking in certain areas. I’m not exactly sure what I want the keypressed action to trigger, but I would like a cute and simple interaction to happen, one that brings the user a sense of delight. Perhaps you press a key and a character on the screen blushes or jumps. I wanted to animate using the soundtrack “Boba Beach” and I attempted to over the summer, but didn’t finish. I had a pink beach and little bobas with faces drawn on them. I thought it’d be interesting if I could animate them in a simple manner using code! Part of the reason I was so hesitant to try to animate this idea was because AfterEffects intimidated me, so I’m excited to see what I can make with my new knowledge of p5.js.

little boba pearls with faces chilling on a beach. maybe they’ll jump when you press keys, or change expression.
