Animator Spotlight: Jonathan Djob Nkondo


After we featured the work of animator Nicolas Ménard he recommended we take a look at Jonathan Djob Nkondo’s work. I’ve seen his animated gifs reposted all over Tumblr for awhile now, and previously featured one of his animations here. He’s the kind of talent that I find difficult to feature because he creates such a wide variety of stuff (I wanna do a whole separate post on his graf stuff).

What I’ve included here is an animated comic that Jonathan has been periodically adding to on his Tumblr. This series of animated gifs captures his amazing sense of movement and colour, and there’s actually something almost more satisfying about following the story this way than simply hitting play on a video. Have a look at the rest of the moving panels below.

1930s Style Animation + Jazz Music = Cuphead Video Game


I rarely post anything video game related but this one, being developed by Studio MDHR, may interest some of you animators out there! Cuphead is an action game featuring fantastic 1930s style cel animations (hand drawn and hand inked), with watercolour backgrounds, and original jazz music. It looks so fun to play!

Players control two characters, Cuphead and Mugman, who after losing a dice roll with the devil, are forced to do his bidding. The game is slated for release as an XBOX and PC title sometime in 2016. Watch the preview video of the game below!

Animation: Simpsons Pixels




I recently came across a whole bunch of these cool pixelated Simpsons characters on Tumblr and after clicking through several different pages I found Simpsons Pixels. Not sure how I completely missed this brilliant animation from way back in February (it’s unforgivable really).

All the looping animated gifs are characters from Ivan Dixon and Paul Robertson’s amazing pixelated Simpsons animation – watch it below! There’s so many great references.
