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.

Animation of the Day: Silkie “Love Affair”


Another flawless animation by London-based 2d and 3d animator Simon Landrein. This one for Silkie’s “Love Affair”. His style is so recognizable now, and he just knows how to pare down everything to just what’s necessary to tell a story. Fantastic work. Watch the animation below.

Director Spotlight: RUFFMERCY

ruffmercy-02ruffmercy-04 ruffmercy-03

I’m not really sure how this is possible but somehow, despite having a slew of Vimeo Staff Picks, this is the first time I am posting about RUFFMERCY. The director/animator is based in Bristol, and has sorta trademarked an expressive rotoscoped animation style. I’ll just let the videos do the talking. Enjoy a bunch of my favourites below!
