Here is the jacket cover of the art book that I wrote and designed, Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo. It has an introduction by Guillermo del Toro. It was edited by Eric Klopfer at Abrams, which is the publisher. Cartoon Network, Pen Ward, Adam Muto, and the whole crew were involved in its creation. Here is an amazon.com referral link: Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo that you can click and pre-order it with so that I can earn some extra change and go out for some pizzas. It is still on a super pre-order sale as of right now. The very reasonable $35 cover price (this is a 352 page book), is currently 29% off … so that’s about ten bucks off, which makes it $24.92. Get into it! It publishes this fall. Look out for more previews and images soon.
Alex Schubert and friends made a new Blobby Boys cartoon, check it out:
Meathaus favorite YouTuber Wendyvanity has changed her username to madcatlady but is still cranking out the music video hits like these kind of gross-awesome meat themed videos. I hope she hasn’t erased all her old classic hits, haven’t dug deep yet. No wait I think they are still there and she is still Wendyvanity. I don’t know what is going on, obviously. But we have posted about her before here and here and here and you can see some nice screen grabs of her videos on those posts.
Eyeball the new object animation video director Martine Rademakers made for the Dutch band Sexton Creeps:
Always like it when directors give a bonus behind the scenes peek at their work. Check out Conor Finnegan‘s video for Candice Gordon’s track “Sound of Horns” and the making-of below it:
Take less than ten minutes of your day to watch this video, EAGER by Allison Schulnik who previously animated this MOUND. Your best bet is go to the Vimeo page and stream it from there so you get full screen HD eye-coverage. The cinematography is by Helder K. Sun and the swell music is by Aaron M. Olson. Here is the video embedded up in here:
Doofus rock demigods Ancient Justice have been laboring on this one-minute animated music video for the track “Cave of Time” in occasional forty-minute spurts at least three times over the last 15 years. And though it still isn’t done, just like a roast, sometimes you take that out of the oven before it’s cooked through and then it just sits there on the counter marinating in its own steaming juices and finishes itself off to moist perfection while you wait.
Jimbo Matison sent over this stop-motion animated music video that he made for Japan’s Bloodthirsty Butchers, check it out above and get into this behind the scenes blog over here.
And here’s some making of videos:
Check it: Dash is doing a second animation screening and discussion of work, this time it will be Friday November, 8th in Brooklyn presented by Comics Arts Brooklyn.
Joey Fourr just sent over this animated music video, GET A LIEF, for you to check out about ten minutes ago. The fun part is that he drew on 144 sheets of paper and scanned them and then continued drawing new animation on them and re-scanned them and so on until things get dense. Also you can see the sheet numbers in the corner and see how he doesn’t play them straight through toward the end but does some loops to create moving holds and stretch little sections for specific timing. Also see his Crumb Cabin for zines and his website.
