Run Wrake is an illustrator and animator based in London whose recent short animation Rabbit has turned him into an underground hero. It was shown at the International Animation Festival in Hiroshima, and also won the Special International Jury Prize. He uses a 1950s-style illustration with quirky type and manga-esque storyboards to create the humorous story of some children exploring nature. Though, don’t be fooled by the benign story plot. This is is far from an innocent and sweet story.
