Earlier today I came across the pixel animations of superbrothers, the alias of Craig Adams, a genius when it comes to small blocks of color. He does really great pixel drawings for a lot of big clients, but it’s really his animations that are so cool, like the one above titled DOT MATRIX REVOLUTION*. The video features two computer engineers checking their vintage electronic equipment, when suddenly they “throw down” in a dance off that spans from 1951 up to today! The computers in the video look great, and the computer engineers dancing is hysterical, so watch it and see what I mean!
HOLY CRAP! The trailer above is for a new short film called Looking Thru The B-Sides which was created by the awesome Saimon Chow and his amazing team at Golden Lucky. The film was commissioned by the folks at FUEL TV and given carte blanche to create anything he really wanted to do. Six months later they came back with an 8 minute film featuring live-action, stop-motion, and hand-drawn animation with one scene featuring over 60 characters rolling around on screen at one time.
The film is about a skateboarder named Ollie who falls into the universe of the B-Sides while searching for inspiration. From the preview above it’s going to be absolutely amazing, I love the depth of field in the stop-motion parts, and the roller coaster scene looks like something out of a Friends With You book. The film is going to be shown at animation and short film festivals for now, so keep an eye out for a screening of this gem!
Adrian Johnson is a UK based illustrator, and makes the cooooooolest graphics! I love his colors and textures so much. Every one of his pieces is soooo good. He even has a couple of really cute animations with mice burping and knights being crushed by dragons.
It seems that he hasn’t updated his site since 2005, which is a shame, I would love to see what he’s doing now!
