Paris vs New York

Standard

 

20120925-113019.jpg

This sweet animation from Tony Miotto compares two of the world’s most brilliant cities, Paris and New York. Based on the book, Paris Versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities by Vahram Muratyan, it pitches JFK against Charles de Gaulle, cupcakes against macaroons and the subway against the metro. Watch with the sound on to get the full effect.

Question is, which is your favourite?

Olympic Vermin

Standard

20120727-120822.jpg

Olympic Vermin is a short film made by London-based animation company Beakus. It follows a community of urban animals carrying their version of the Olympic torch (which starts off a cigarette and ends up a sparkler) through the capital’s rubbish-strewn streets. Traversing roads, canals and even the tube, this is a clever, witty comment on the concept of Olympic inclusivity.

T-Rex Trying…

Standard

20120627-100919.jpg

I love artist Hugh Murphy’s highly amusing Tumblr, T-Rex Trying, in which the most infamous of dinosaurs is depicted attempting to do every day things such as stowing his hand luggage into the overhead locker, trying to make a move while watching a movie and trying to be a matador. It’s simple, silly and sweet, all at the same time.

Incredible 3D Sketchbook Illustrations

Standard

20120626-095423.jpg

Nagai Hideyuki is a 21 year old artist from Japan, he creates drawings that seem to leap out of the sketchbook before your very eyes. It’s amazing to see what can be done with just a pencil and paper and the right angle for capturing a photo. The way he uses lighting, shading, and anamorphosis to create these 3D images is reminiscent of MC Escher but even more mind-blowing.

The Disney universe have been shaken by several scandals …
The artist José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros undermines all ideals of fairy tales. His paintings are scandalous glimpse of the otherwise rosy world of Snow White, Dumbo and Co., we must recognize that even the most fabulous character has vices and secrets. That with the happy ending always occurring, we must also reconsider.

Animated Gifs

Matthew Divito is a Boston-based designer who produces some of the cleverest gifs I’ve seen. Reminiscent of Seventies psychedelic poster art, they mix geometric forms and contrasting colours. They’re also silent so your boss will just think you’re deeply involved in that urgent appraisal form.

20120608-164710.jpg

Charlie the Unicorn is a Flash animated short film and viral video directed, produced, animated, and written by Jason Steele of independent film company FilmCow. The film follows the life of Charlie, a lethargic unicorn, and two other unicorns who bring him on an allegedly magical adventure to the mythical “Candy Mountain”.

20120608-164630.jpg

The video was a viral hit, accumulating 50 million views and gaining worldwide praise. A merchandising line was later produced featuring the video’s characters and famed quotations, as well as two sequels, Charlie the Unicorn 2 and Charlie the Unicorn 3, released in 2008 and 2009, respectively, and a parody series titled Charlie teh Unicron, created by Steele in 2010. All three videos in the series were released to DVD in 2009 under the title The FilmCow Master Collection.

Working with Dinosaurs

The Dinosaur Office is a clay-animation video series starring dinosaurs in familiar, everyday office situations. It was created by writers Kevin Corrigan, Caldwell Tanner and Brian Murphy at collegehumor.com in New York. Of course, unlike human workplaces, at Dinosaur Office all gossiping is done in booming dinosaur voices and fights-to-the-death occasionally break out at office parties.
