Animation monday : Gloam

Created by David Elwell & Gareth Hughes.
The peaceful wandering of an odd wood creature.

I love that they didn’t felt the need to add any actual action to the movie. Keeping it focused on the actual subject : The creature. Pure, unadulterated love for the creature.

I confess, maybe my fondness may have something to do with a passing resemblance she bears with the take on the Sasquatch I did for the “missing link” pictoplasma exhibition.

Gremlin

On the canevas of Saint-Denis under the snow.

Here’s to you, who taught me how to create that kind of things, without Photoshop, without computers, just with a little grain of imagination.

 

A series about spooky intrusions into our world. Made without any digital image editing, not even for the contrasts or colors. Everything was made by hand with paper and scissors.

The Underwater Invasion

conquering the volcano

It began with the sudden appearance of strange geological formations.

magic mushroom

The authorities quickly sent a team of scientists to investigate …

toxic eggs

… which soon discovered that the formation was organic in nature and spreading at an alarming speed !

hermit crab attack !

The situation spiralled out of control, creating panic among the population !

bobbit worm

Armed forces were used to try to resist the ongoing invasion .. but in vain !

sewer workers

Not a single hole in the ground could be considered safe.

 train inspectors

Fortunately, with a bit of dialogue, the underwater creatures managed to reach an agreement and earn enough trust to be able to live peacefully together with the little people invaders.

Jason Isley is a photographer specialized in wild life and especially the oceanic fauna. Inexplicably, he grew tired of classic shots and came up with a nice twist by creating little dioramas using train miniatures (the like of Slinkashu) and the complicity of the sea creatures. I love it !

“There is a big spider in the office”

Warning : spiders. Video not suitable for arachnophobes.

Genius misuses of a bit of projection mapping.
Simplicity.

Irruption of fiction into mundane everyday perspective.

Sudden realisation that the contemporary world drive us all into living in plexiglas boxes,
where our crawling, beautiful, dark chaotic self, our arachnean side, is left panicking worthlessly.
