insa-space-gif-iti

My talented buddy INSA just created the world’s largest animated GIF, with the help of a team of painters, and a satellite in space. The mural in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is part of his “GIF-ITI” series, an on-going project in which he paints murals several times over to create frames of animation. As you can see in the video below, working at this scale is no easy task!

“Gif-fiti” animated murals by INSA

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!

“Sanjay and Craig” – The Official Trailer

Sanjay and Craig - The Official Trailer
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!

Procrastination by Johnny Kelly

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!
