Though it was released a year or two ago, the music video for the title track of Blockhead's album "The Music Scene", is one of the most incredibly illustrated animations that I have EVER seen. I recently came across it again, and if you have yet to witness this masterpiece by Anthony Schepperd, please do yourself a favor.

'This was my first (and last) traditional animation project. The one that almost killed me.... it all started on paper, with layouts and keyframes pencilled on a lightbox. This material was then scanned into photoshop. The photoshop frames were then brought into Illustrator, animated and the rest is Griddleville.' An animation by Ba Blackstock.

There was mixed reviews of the movie Drive in our office (lots of people loved it, others were a bit down on it), but we really enjoyed seeing this animated tribute to the Ryan Gosling-starring feature film by the duo of Tom Haugomat and Bruno Mangyoku. As we get to the close of 2011, nice to look back on some of the films that got people talking.

Former Juxtapoz featured artist, David OReilly, created this animation as part of Part of Tim and Eric's "Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax." This is not good for work (NSFW) but chances are you are just waiting in line to take back a cardigan right now, so enjoy.

There are so many great, classic Holiday stories and characters (Charlie Brown, Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman) but we decided to go with one of the greats, Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Enjoy watching and Happy Holidays.

The making of a large scale, sexy illustration from illustrator and art director Matthew Bessudo in his bold, signiature style. Short animated shot-motion in addition to some great new work. Love.

A little silent amimation based on The Dangers of Doctors and Patent Medicines. Taking place around 1911 with all of the great suble humors that 'talkies' usually told, the fine designers over at Rockstar in San Diego are responsible for this great little short.

London-based animator Nicos LIvesey created this animation by layering varying colorful forms and patterns of plasticine and then slicing 2 millimeters width for every frame. Considering the scale of the form, Livesey framed the animation in a manner that feels life-sized and very much in the viewer's space.

Spike Jonze’s just creatd this "tragicomic" stop-motion animation for designer Olympia Le-Tan. What makes us excited, besides the fact that Spike Jonze always makes interesting films, is that this animation takes place at Paris' famed bookstore, Shakespeare and Company. A skeleton and felt woman then have a love story to make.
