When people tell me about how they can’t draw, the first thing I do is snort-laugh right in their face. Because obviously my skills in drawing dragons makes me a much better person than them. Second, I send them to this tutorial, for my further revelry in their less-than-ness. Finally, I will feel pity and send them to this tutorial on how to draw a penguin. Because everyone knows that penguins are adorable.
Ned Wenlock made this video and it made all of our jaws drop at work today. It’s so well done and the details are so so good.
So for graduation from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Eran Hilleli created this short film called Between Bears. It’s worth to watch it for the color palette alone. Very Mathew Lyons-esque. Upon posting of this video, I immediately felt really small and untalented and unaccomplished. Thanks, Eran. Thanks.
This is a 1960′s ad for Tory’s Whiskey animated by Ryohei Yanagihara. I’m a big fan of Yanagihara’s style. It’s fun and carefree with a smart choice of colors. This commercial makes my inner 10-year-old want to go get hammered. As that’s impossible, maybe I’ll just go give some booze to a 10-year-old. That’s cool, right?
John Woo made these which in turn made me giggle and clap my hands together three times. I’m gonna go buy a Darth Vader mask for every time I dress up now. Everyone will wonder who the guy with asthma and sharp suit in the corner is. It’ll be exactly how it is now, except I’ll be wearing a super nerdy mask.
I have a lot to talk about when it comes to BJs. (If I write his initials like that, it’s hilarious.) He’s an incredibly talented illustrator. I’ve put some of his work under the cut. His color theory is impeccable. His retro style, in combination with his slight use of texture, really sets his stuff apart.
The short video above was created by Brandon. It’s well written; smartly uses the focus to create a good depth of field so as not to look flat with its animation style; and the sound effects and comedic timing push it all over the top. Plus the bear has nipples. How I love it so. Well done, BJs. Well done.
