Home Movies

After a long day of tapping the keys, there’s nothing quite like unwinding on the sofa with a glass of New Zealand white and an episode, or two, of Home Movies. Brendan Cannon from Broken Social Scene first put us onto it, and now it’s become an addiction. This episode is probably my favourite.

David Firth’s Pulch

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Friday 5 September 2008

More manic madness from Salad Fingers creator, David Firth. In Firth’s own words, Pulch is ‘about a giant Pulch that grows in order to cheer people up’. But of course, like all of his animations, it comes with a dark twist. Or three.

Valery’s Broken Toyland

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Thursday 21 August 2008

The work of artist Valery is very dark, yet imbued with a sense of playfulness: ‘Most of the Broken Toyland characters came to life in the late 90s and early 00s. The visuals have to do with my love of the past, vintage toys, cartoons, and such. Then came the rag dolls and patchwork bunnies. Broken Toyland’s base is in behavior, emotion, situation and imperfection. While Bunny very often has a smoke or a drink (or both) in hand, this is not what’s being promoted. There’s much more going on than what might be first assumed at first glance. The anesthetics symbolize something else. I have a lot of empathy for the characters and feel drawn to keep recreating them again and again. I suppose I identify with them all too well, as would many’.

Dead in the Now

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in Cool Websites on Tuesday 5 August 2008

Dead in the Now is a great new web comic by an artist named Rey about a boy who decides to raise an army of zombies. The style is anime inspired, but really loose and unfussy. There’s an almost frantic, psychedelic feel to it, which makes it unique. Not your typical fanboy fare.

Jo Spurling Reader Find

By Jo Spurling in New Illustration on Tuesday 15 July 2008

Sassy waifs are the hallmark of Martin Abel’s work. Graphite collides with vector style to create edgy damsels with only a dash of decorum between them. This is some sexy work, regardless of your persuasion. Complimented with a classic comic flair, Abel’s other contributions include work for the official X-box magazine. Keep an eye on […]

Hilda’s Story

By Gerry Mak in Video on Tuesday 8 April 2008

This great little cartoon is about two lonely people who finally find each other and fall in love, only to have the past catch up with them. It’s a bit morbid, but still very cute.

Salad Fingers 8

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Thursday 24 January 2008

I checked into David Firth’s weird and twisted world for the first time in ages the other day to be rewarded with another installment in his mind-sapping Salad Fingers series. Boo! It’s as sensory and creepily real as the rest of the episodes. Yes, pure genius comes in multi-dimensional shades indeed.

Man, this clip by Junior Senior brings me back to the days when Atari and Commodore 64 ruled the heap and technology was but a freckle on the great armpit of life.
