Going West Stop-Motion Animation

This is what 8 months of work with a 10A scalpel blade looks like. London’s Andersen M studio put this together for the NZ Book Council.

    If you are feeling this aesthetic, you have to check out Brian Dettmer’s work.
    Saw a show of his in Chelsea, NYC. You have to see these things in real life, you can’t get your jaw to close in their presence.
