'Our friends at Cartoon Network got in touch earlier in the year to ask us to work with them on a music video for their 20th Birthday celebrations.

Erotica // Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Yeah Just There from Grant Orchard is provocative minimalism at it's finest. This erotically charged animation from my new favorite is little one minute piece that was created to celebrate onedotzero's 15th birthday and the release of their specially commissioned Granimator Packs with ustwo.

Late Night Work Club: Ghost Stories

Illustration // Wednesday, January 30, 2013
'Late Night Work Club is a loose, rotating collective of indie animators. That is, animators who do independent, non-commercial work. It’s an excuse to bring a whole bunch of people together to make something great, and also to promote the work of the artists involved. Some of the best, most personal, experimental and vital animation going right now is happening on the internet. It’s being made late at night when other people have gone to sleep and on weekends when everyone else is out...'

Growing up in the Ren and Stimpy generation, I can't help but get excited about this kind of animation. 'Pig Goat Banana Mantis' was created with Dave Cooper’s drawings, Johnny Ryan’s writing, and Nick Cross’s animation. Dave Cooper (born 1967) is a cartoonist, commercial illustrator and a graphic designer who lives in Ottawa, Canada. In addition to comics, several of his designs were used in the animated cartoon Futurama, notably various areas of the Planet Express office.

Music Video: Shugo Tokumaru "Katachi"

Music // Wednesday, January 23, 2013
Stop-motion seems like it has been around and been done well for a long time now, but we still get a kick out of a really well done stop-motion animation. The music video for Shugo Tokumaru's Katachi features a long winding tale of stop-motion fun by directors Kijek/Adamski. It sort of crawls along, literally, and features a footballer, a wolf, a palm tree, an explosion, and people radiating positive vibes.

(notes on) biology

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 04, 2013
I was never a good doodler. I tried, but mainly I made attempts at recreating the Stussy and Mossimo signature logos when any class that wasn't English or History. So I get the doodling during Biology class routine, but I was never this good. Created by Danny Madden, Will Madden, and Jonathan Silva of Ornana Films, this short (notes on) biology, won an animation award at last year's SXSW.

An Animation from Rickard Bengtsson

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 05, 2012
'I've been a big fan of music by the great composer Ludovico Einaudi for a long time. About 2 years ago I found this great, very different and mysterious track of his. After searching for it I couldn't find any info on it. Who are the people, where is it from? Which just made me even more interested and right after hearing it for the first time I knew I had to make an animation for it. It was a project that has always been in the back of  my mind and hasnt changed a whole lot since day 1.'
