We posted a teaser trailer from James D Wilson (aka JamBonBon) last October, in which he brought to life the beautiful animal illustrations of Ben Newman. At the time very little was revealed about the project but we had a sneaking suspicion it would in some way be tied into Nobrow Press. This London based independent publishing house has released work by Ben in the past including a role of packing tape featuring the same series of animal illustrations.
Nobrow launched a new website for their new children's publishing arm called Flying Eye Books yesterday and the completed animated short you see below was what greeted visitors on the home page. We're huge fans of Nobrow Press' superb books, having even featured Jesse Moynihan's 'Forming' on AR in the past, so we're really excited to see they've finally branch out into children's books. Flying Eye Books have also set up their own Vimeo account which suggests animation may play a part in some of their subsequent publications... we can't wait.
