Ricardo Bessa Illustrates for Totaljobs

Ricardo Bessa captivates with a collaborative set of animations.

For his latest project Ricardo Bessa teamed up with animator James Sandifer to create nine stunning gifs which stand as a colourful backdrop for Matthew Todd’s article about LGBT workers. February has been recognized as LGBT history month across the UK since 2005.

To do their part in observing the national holiday, Bessa and Sandifer created 9 different scenarios, all LGBT-centric, which display how isolating being a member of this community can be at times, especially within the workplace.

Bessa, the illustrator of all the pieces, crafted the scenes which range from poignant to empowering. The images feature soft tones which are paired with palpable characters, giving each scene a striking feeling of realism.

That realism is heightened even further with the addition of the work from animator James Sandifer. Sandifer’s tinkering is subtle, but even the smallest of motions garner the emotional attention of the audience.

The collection works exceptionally on an artistic level, as well as a thought-provoking one. Check out some of the pieces from the set below.
