Efrat Benzur - Robin

Renowned Israeli stop-motion animators Yuval & Merav Nathan created this gorgeous music video for 'Robin' by Efrat Benzur.

Nendo Winnie The Pooh Glassware



Following on from their range of knitting-clad wooden furniture, subtly suggesting Winnie The Pooh and Friends characters, Nendo have now released a range of glassware inspired by the lovable bear.

The Pooh Glassware was designed for Walt Disney in Japan as part of a series of products themed around the children's story books. Keeping the glass components as simple as possible, the designers could focus their attention on creating a series of yellow silicon bases and tops that depict the activities and habitats of the cartoon bear.

The lids, stoppers and coasters capture some of Pooh's most notorious mishaps, including climbing trees, sticking his head in a jar of honey and hanging from a balloon.

Wizard Skull: The "Michael Bay" Series



Brooklyn-based artist and illustrator Wizard Skull is infamous for his use of grotesquely perverse cartoon pop-culture imagery. His latest project, dubbed 'The "Michael Bay" Series', sees him fuck up animation classics worse than Michael Bay!

The project utalises the actual animation cels used to produce the original cartoons... 'He-Man and the Masters of the Universe', 'The Smurfs', 'The Real Ghostbusters' and the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' have already had weird embellishments and additional characters painted into the frames, both destroying the original and creating a new piece of art in the process.




Wong Ping: Stop Peeping

'Stop Peeping' tells the story of a man who repeatedly breaks into his neighbors apartment so can wring out her sweaty clothes to make ice lollies... Perfectly normal them!?


Hugo Moreno: Home

Over a year ago we posted Hugo Moreno's faux-trailer for 'Canyon', an animated voyeuristic thriller set in a sprawling desert landscape... Now he's back with what looks like another mini-short/trailer called 'Home'.
