Trevor Spencer: Monsters!

Trevor is a hell of an artist as well as a really smashing monster designer. I guess that "Muppetish" kind of look to them is one of the (many) reasons why I like his monster designs here so much. Anyway, here's the link to his blog!

Take The Bus

Lovely character design on the ants.


Update: By the way, Davide (see comments) is absolutely right, the clip with the penguins is indeed a funny and well designed one, too :) Love the design on the Orca whale:


And last but least, here's the one with the fireflies:

Vehicle Design: Jaguar E Type Inspired Submarine

Legendary cars are always good "shape-helpers" to me...

By the way, this bird controlled and Jaguar inspired submarine is part of a range of designs of mine (mainly out of "Toby Skybuckle" and "Motorbirds" visdev things) which will be exhibited at the Top International Designers Show in the scope of this year's Shanghai Design Exhibition.

Mr. Bubble (1950s); We Learn About The Telephone (1965)

Update: OH WOW, WHAT A FIND, how beautifully and smoothly animated this commercial is. A real treasure for classical hand drawn animation lovers:

Apropos, I really love the animation parts of this educational film from the 1960s, too:

Brilliant Animation Test

Well, I wouldn't call this a test, it's more like a brilliantly done little movie, wonderfully deployed by SONY's uber-talented Chris Williams.
"Here's an early performance test I animated for the Mayor in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. This is unfinished and is still quite rough in terms of timing and lip sync, but it gives you an idea of where we were heading with this little guy. Enjoy!"

Update: Here's a nice Q&A with 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' titles co-director Todd Hemker:
