Simply brilliant song and video by one of my favorites, the great Alice Donut. The first few seconds of animation sum it all up in a hysterically dark take on life itself.
‘Loneliness has become the most common ailment of the modern world’. This hauntingly accurate statement gives us a new perspective on how social media really affects our lives.

Here is my latest Planet animation from my ongoing Illustrated Aliens project. I’m now up to Planet Seven, where we find two of its inhabitant having a chat that gets a bit too much for one of them. If you’ve missed any of the other six planets, catch up with them on their dedicated Vimeo […]
This is what happens when you take either too many drugs, or possibly not enough. Piro’s collection of ‘out there’ wacky mini animated vignettes is clearly the markings of a creative madman.

In this music video, the artist combined traditional watercolor techniques with digital effects. Every texture, illustration or letter was painted and scanned several times to achieve this beautiful effect. It took weeks to produce because of the high level of details and the painting effect the artist wanted to achieve. It’s a brilliant combination of […]
Amanda King’s music is a mesmerizing form of indie folk. The music video for her song Yellow Velvet Mountain, directed by Nicola Smanio, is a mix of live action, plastic lenses, model landscapes and hand-drawn creatures, all spiced up with a bit of dreaminess and mysticism.
I’ve always had a small, nagging fear in the back of my mind that a monster meteorite might splinter the earth into a million pieces. But when I step back and think it through, there actually have been a whole lot of meteorite strikes. And the earth is still just fine. Thanks to the smarts […]
‘I knew I wanted to work with Johnerick as soon as I met him’, says New York-based singer-songwriter David Bronson about animator Johnerick Lawson and his contribution to the new music video for Bronson’s song Outside. Johnerick’s work is a creative mixture of animation techniques that compliments the song’s themes of inner reflection. ‘Who can […]
