If you’ve never seen the work of Molly Crabapple, you’re in for a treat. The New York art sensation of Dr. Sketchy Anti-Art School fame has joined forces with world-renowned musician Kim Boekbinder and animator Jim Batt to create a most sensational paper-puppet short stop-motion film, made completely by hand.

I Have Your Heart is an entire paper cut-out world of staggering detail, telling the story of a rich girl with a bad heart, and the boy who died to give her his. And they need our help to raise money for production of the animation. Check out the website and Kickstarter project to see the trailer and to help make this happen.
