This is cinematic perfection, it’s truly one of the finest pieces of animation I’ve seen. I’ve praised Allison Schulnik’s animations in the past (here and here) but I think this film is her strongest work to date. It is absolutely gorgeous, and also terrifying, and I guess that’s sort of how I feel about all of her work.
Watch the Allison Schulnik’s animation “Eager” below!
I haven’t watched The Simpsons in years but I might have to this Sunday. The teaser for the next episode reveals it to be a tribute to Japanese director, animator, Hayao Miyazaki. It will be an entire episode brimming with references to Studio Ghibli films.
*Edit – it was not an entire episode, it was just this sequence unfortunately.
The teaser has glimpses of My Neighbor Totoro, Howl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Spirited Away, well, you get the idea.
I was thinking though, how cool would it have been to have Studio Ghibli actually produce the episode of The Simpsons? In their style! I guess, this is the next best thing.

The latest episode of the interview series “Like Knows Like” features New York-based illustrator Victo Ngai. I’ve followed her work for awhile so it was great to hear her talk about her work (and sing some Backstreet Boys). If you missed it, I previously posted Victo’s work here and here.

Animator Jim Le Fevre, whom I posted about way back in 2008 (See here: “Phonographantasmascope”), teamed up with Roops and Al Johnstone to make a fantastic phonotrope animation for the Crafts Council.
Roops and Al Johnstone make earthenware under the name RAMP, which stands for Roop and Al Make Pots. I can only imagine how anxious they must have been waiting for this thing to fire in the kiln, hoping nothing went wrong after all their hard work.
