Illustrated music video for The Dead Pirates song, Wood

I discovered The Dead Pirates a few years ago and have been a fan ever since. Check out their music video for country/rock inspired track, Wood. The animation is outstanding and the black and white illustrations are created by French illustrator and band guitarist, Matthieu Bessudo (Mcbess).

The pen and ink style has an old cartoon flavour. I just love the random scenes that are conjured up with pieces of meat, rock n’ roll parties and characters with stoned eyes and general debauchery.
