Jamie Caliri for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 16, 2011
We know this is about a year old, but we really enjoy the work of director Jamie Caliri, and Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay is a fantastic book. So Caliri doing an exploration of animation concepts for the upcoming, yet-to-be scheduled film seems appropriate to share.

Mobius: Stop-Motion Installation

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 13, 2011
That is a mouthful. This project, MÖBIUS, by Melbourne, Australia-based design and public art installation firm ENESS, seems simple enough: a lot of effects done on a computer to make the effect of objects moving in and around a city center. But this is one painstaking, deliberate, detailed piece of stop motion, public art.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 11, 2011
Today, August 11, is the 20th anniversary of Nickelodeon airing of the groundbreaking cartoon, Ren & Stimpy. The show, created by John Kricfalusi and produced by Spumco, paved the way for so many shows today, including "South Park" and a lot of Adult Swin shows you see today.

"Dwellings" is a great animation short created by Aaron Wendel back in 2010.  Wendel brings you two houses, or "dwellings" if you must, that are simultaneously destroying each other. The last sequence is especially pleasing.

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 25, 2011
It has been talked about for quite some time now, but Mike Judge is bringing back the seminal 1990's cartoon, Beavis and Butthead. It is hard to find anyone over the age of 25 years old who didn't spend hours with this MTV show. At Comic Con 2011, a snippet of the new version was shown to audiences....

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 24, 2011
Conan O'Brien was joking when he asked someone at Warner Brother Animation if he could have his own Superhero made. His ideas for his costume consisted of goggles, purple spandex, fishnet stockings, oxfords, and oven mits. Well, not only did he get taken serious by Warner Brothers, but also by his fans.

Comic Con 2011: Adult Swim

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 23, 2011
Adult Swim is well known for some of the funniest and most creative TV shows on television today. With a portfolio which consists of established hits like The Venture Bros, and Robot Chicken as well as new successes like Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego:Sport Utility Vehicle) it shouldn't be a surprise that this series of panels was by far the most hilarious experience I have ever had.
