    Lovely. I wonder if there is a way to do this as a sort of live-action augmented-reality ballet.

  • ninobenito

    nice. wonderfully done.

  • John Hall

    This is kind of incredible

  • Alex

    Love this animation style

  • Damon Sherman

    is this about responsible, recreational drug use? Just with the image of the sea sponges sucking the people in, and the euphoric colors seems to give me that vibe.

  • Rodolfo Acevedo Roa

    This is so beautiful! for me this is about, love & family (homoparental family) and how people has to struggle it with external attacks (from homophobic people), recover and move on together.

    • Damon Sherman

      I don’t know, the main character wasn’t really coded with any gender. It could have easily been either a man or a woman with long-ish hair.

If you’re looking for some drawing inspiration, the blog documents a game of visual ping pong between the two artists (they’ve also released a couple books). Check out some more images below.
