Terrific animated gifs by Japanese illustrator Daisuke Nimura. More below.
Okay, this animation by Gabe Mangold is a masterpiece, and there wasn’t a single frame that I could pick that would do it justice. It’s the freshest hand-drawn animation I’ve seen in a long time. The song, Girl Seizure” by Last Ex, is wonderfully strange already but the video takes it to another dimension altogether. Found via our Booooooom Vimeo Group.

Last week at our “Drawing On The Past” show I met Tim Hoyle, an English guy with a moustache, who makes animations under the name El Tacodor. Here’s a video he made earlier this year for a Pete Cannon, Dr Syntax, Jehst, and Del track. Love the simple style he’s got going on, watch the video below.
The Simpsons recently tapped Oscar-nominated animator Don Hertzfeldt to animate the opening title couch gag and, well, it’s as weird as you’d expect it to be if you’re familiar with his work. To be honest, it’s not really my thing, but I like how left field it is. The show has been unfunny for so long, can anything save it?
I’ve said it before, I think it would be cool if they allowed different artists to do entire episodes. Like the episode where they paid tribute to Hayao Miyazaki would have been so much cooler if it was entire episode produced by Studio Ghibli. The best thing they’ve done in recent years was that intro to the show by Banksy.
