Tumblr of the week: “Exploding Actresses” by Simone Rovellini. Not all the gifs are from animations but I think they’re the best ones. See more below!
I was stoked to meet INSA in Melbourne not too long ago. Really loving all the animated pieces he’s been doing lately. When these images pop up on Tumblr I’m sure there’s a bunch of people who don’t realise he’s actually re-painting the walls several times to achieve these effects.
Incredible stuff. More below!
I’m stoked for “Sanjay and Craig” to debut next month on Nickelodeon! If you haven’t heard, the minds behind the show are Andreas Trolf, Jim Dirschberger and Jay Howell. How cool is it that a cartoon featuring Jay Howell characters will be on tv! Looks like all those animations for Vans paid off!
The cast includes Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock), Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks), Matt Jones (Badger on Breaking Bad), and Tony Hale (Arrested Development).
Watch the official trailer below!
I was busy all morning doing a bunch of stuff, at least I thought I was. After stumbling upon this masterpiece by Johnny Kelly I realised I hadn’t done anything and had just spent my entire morning procrastinating. Kelly created Procrastination for his MA in Animation at the Royal College of Art. This is the sort of thing you bookmark for later when you are having a creative block. If you are already wasting your day you have nothing to lose watching this little short, but I’d recommend watching it even if you have no time to spare.
I snagged a few examples of Kelly’s superb design work for you all as well!
Imagine a daily comic strip and a video game had a baby. I would name that baby Flying Pizza Kitty. Yet another genius creation by Ben. Love the movie references! Maybe animated gifs will make a comeback? If the images are a tiny bit blurry it’s because I blew them up to 500 wide, sorry but I gotta keep this place looking tidy. No shoes on the carpet!
