Today's Inspiration: The Death of an Insect

I have been doing a bit of moth/butterfly research for an upcoming project. I came across this incredible work by the Finnish animation team of Hannes Vartiainen & Pekka Veikkolainen. I just had to share it.

This is experimental animation at it's best. This film was created with stop motion, 3D modeling and CT Scans. You can check out more of their work here.

Happy Friday! Today's inspiration...

Just a little hello and I wanted to share this lovely little video I found for the band Hem. The Animation was created by the super talented Greg Lytle and Jordan Bruner. The video is so sweet and is very reminiscent of San Francisco or Brooklyn, don't you think? Isn't it amazing what they did  with different textures?

On another note, I'm sorry I've been so quiet on the bog lately. There is much new stuff in the works. I'll tell you about all ASAP. Until then, enjoy.

Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I sure did. It is going to be a very busy week for me. I am trying to get my Etsy shop open for business. Here's to loads of productivity!

I did allow myself a bit of a break though, where I found this lovely and creepily wonderful animation I found by Rodrigo Blaas. Hope you enjoy it.

I randomly found this video on line and it just floored me. It is done by the incredibly talented duo Alasdair Brotherston and Jock Mooney. I love all the drawings and layers of so many things going on at once. It must have been so hard to get this going just right. I imagine many takes, and a lot of frustration. But it is beautifully. Good work guys.
