Koko el Mental

Well apologies first,  I had a very bad cold and cough the last 4 weeks really slowing me down so I kinda rushed this one to make it into a group show based on the four basic elements. This is not my best work but not my worst either, The Koko the clown character has always been a favorite of mine and I thought if I ever painted him it would have to be at least as weird as the old cartoons, so there ya go. I hope I can revisit this later and paint it up right.

Les Triolets

I just came across this “rubber hose” style animation by the great Carlos Nine and his son Lucas. Carlos Nine (pronounced Neenyay) is an amazing Argentine artist who publishes most of his work via France. His work is wonderfully strange and sensual and seems to come from a different era, I really love this guys stuff.

-and check out Carlos Nine’s website too.

-also check the comments for another cartoon link sent by Lucas created by his brother, what a talented family.
-here is Lucas’ website (thanx Lucas!)

Love & Theft

Okay this is just too cool. I found this on the Drawn! site. It’s a film by Andreas Hykade, in the National Film Board of Canada competition and it reminds me of my miss-spent youth attending all those animation festivals back in the day. Be warned there are a few abstract naughty bits.
