Livin In The Sunlight, Lovin In The Moonlight

“Drawn in their distinctive 80s-inspired kaleidoscopic style, the Layzells take us on a surreal romp through a richly textured cartoon world dreamed up by a hallucinating out-of-work animator.”

File under: LOLWAT

A surreal-silly-psychedelic-good-times romp created at Blink for Adam Buxton‘s new ‘comedy-meets-music-video’ series, BUG, on Sky Atlantic HD. Best served at the height of your sesh in full-screen HD. This one’s a treat; ENJOY!

P.S. The Layzell Brothers (who illustrated/animated/directed the attached) are also responsible for the super-bizarre Reindeer and om-y 8-Bit Mazes so give those a gander when you’re done here.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, friends! I first saw this very-apt-for-the-site bit of animation on December 27th of last year and have been saving it ever since to share with all of you today. It’s from a series of five short idents created by Matt Layzell, Bishoy Gendi, Michael Gendi, Jonathan Harris and Daniel Boyle of Treat Studios for E4, “to surprise people with something really anti-christmas, and transform something boring into something amazing.” All of them are fantastically bizarre and definitely worth a watch:

Oh, and a big thanks to both Harry Peppit and Sam Lillard who sent these our way via our suggestion box and Facebook wall this past September. Cheers, guys!

Mazes (full)

Hey, remember that trailer for ‘Mazes’ I posted back in January?  Well, here’s the full business. Treat Studios FTW. The sound design is especially nice so if you’ve got a nice pair of headphones you might want to don them before clicking play. Enjoy!

Super-talented London animation house, Treat Studios, has loads of great stuff posted up on their Vimeo account.  The attached video stood out from the pack, however. It’s a teaser trailer they created to promote an Etsy labs sponsored show they were a part of in Berlin – it’s strange, colorful, bright, bizarre and just plain wonderful.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
