We’ve posted before on Jake Fried’s drawings and animations and are thrilled that he’s created a new animation.

In Jake Fried's animated short "Sick Leave," the Boston-based artist and animator's frantic hand-drawn style and unpredictable stream-of-conciousness content are almost overwhelming. Although primarily known for his paintings, Fried has been experimenting with animation to essentially create "moving paintings," rendered with raw materials such as ink and white-out.
