I stumbled across this music video last week, and can’t get over how awesome it is. The flat, simple shapes give it a playful vibe that go along well with the lyrics.

Sammy Slabbnick uses playful vintage clippings to create quirky, appealing landscapes with a surreal quality. His images echo predecessors like Terry Gilliam very strongly. Speaking of animation, he makes short stop motions on Vine as well, be sure to give them a look!

Adrien Mergieau is a French illustrator who currently lives in Ireland. He works with The Cartoon Salon, Jennifer Evans and Our Little Secrets. His work is beautifully ethereal and the video he created for Villagers’ song Cecelia and her Selfhood is particularly beautiful, don’t you agree?
Have a look at his website.

Pascal Campion is a French-American illustrator and animator. He has worked in a wide variety of media, illustrating games, music videos, feature films, and books for such clients as Dreamworks Animation, Disney TV, MTV, Nickelodeon, Bent Image Labs, Cartoon Network, Hulu, They Might Be Giants, and PBS. Pascal has been working professionally for about ten years and currently lives in San Francisco with his wife and daughter. He finds inspiration in the everyday people and objects around him and believes that color is as essential to the piece as the composition itself.
He’s got an amazing sense of light and emotion, and his scenes glow with feeling. A lot of his work involves couples in love, young families, crowded and lonely cities, and sometimes cats.

I wrote about Anne-Marie Jones’s work last year, but I keep going back to check out her work and I love it more and more. She experiments a lot, it seems, and I like that in particular. I’ve found that playing with mediums and trying techniques teaches me more than anything else – it’s better than any book I’ve read or class I’ve taken so far. So I like that a lot of what Jones posts on her blog are little trials. Her work comes across as playful to me. She’s even got some simple, fun animations on her portfolio site.
Julia is a British animator and illustrator living in Brooklyn, New York – her work tends to explore the motivations behind human relationships, representing characters as mildly ridiculous animals with human characteristics. I totally LOVE them and have two on my walls at home…
…and couldn’t resist this one too…
