We would like to thank the people who created this stop-motion, husband and wife team Sean and Lisa Ohlenkamp and their crew for making this incredibly time intensive piece, The Joy of Books. Filmed in Type bookstore in Toronto, we can only imagine how long just the stacking and restacking must have taken.

I came across this hallucinogenic, twisted piece of animation called Malice in Wonderland, by Vince Collins back in 1982. It’s probably NSFW but don’t let that stop you. Creator Collins also has a MySpace with an entertaining account of his animation career thus far and links to more of his work.

We try and catch a few animations during the week to keep up with who is making great work, and we just saw this short by ellusive French duo CRCR called, Les Chiens Isolés (Lonely Dogs). It is beautifully rendered, well-paced, well-sounddtracked, following two friends as they work on an isolated oil rig.

You know it, we know it, everyone knows it; we love LEGO art. Atlanta-based filmmaker Walt Thompson just created this incredible and time-consuming stop motion of a marriage proposal. The best part?It documents the proposal and courtship of his girlfriend Nealey Dozier.

A little reminder of one of the greatest hallucinogenic animated freak-outs in movie history, a clip from Beavis and Butthead Do America, from the ever talented creator Mike Judge. I'm glad to have these guys back on, somethings never die. Come to Butthead....

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.
