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.

Bill Porter’s short illustrated animation, On Time Off, will either inspire you to head to the beach or make you want to stay as far the hell away as possible. His melancholic and satirical take on beach life stems from his own experiences working in an ice cream shop in Cornwall.

A new piece of animation by Ian Miller. It may be a Cheap Joke, but Miller’s animation skills are no joke- amazingly done with a slice of Ren and Stimpy style insanity.

This animation by Drew Christie has some things that remind us of William Kentridge's work. Kentridge's work is some of our favorite, and Drew Christie makes a pretty interesting animation here as well. The shaky style and constant movement has a similar feel.
