In Illustration: Playing for Keeeps

Illustration // Tuesday, September 20, 2011
Animated illustrated short, Playing For Keeeps by Dylan Hayes is both witty and violent, primitive and sophisticated, and through all its strangeness, surprisingly poignant. Hayes uses hand-drawn animation to startling effect, creating a stark, ominous environment with a minimalist drawing style. The motivations of each of the film’s characters is crystal clear, yet the message one takes away is open to viewer interpretation.
