I’m really enjoying this pair of perfectly executed stop motion videos shot by animation studio stoptrick featuring the origami work of Sipho Mabona. Mabona also just completed a fun origami installation for the Japanese American National Museum in L.A. featuring a swarm of locusts folded from uncut sheets of U.S. currency. (via laughing squid)

Handmade Type is a typographic experiment by designer Tien-Min Liao wherein shapes painted on her hands are transformed by gestures to create letterforms. However she gave herself a unique constraint: the painted figures on her hands for each individual letter had to be utilized for all variations of the letter, both upper and lowercase and sometimes even italic and handwritten. See more examples and the full alphabet over on Behance.

A Mind-Melting Animation for Good Books International

A Mind Melting Animation for Good Books International stop motion books animation advertising

Loaded with visual references to the writing of Franz Kafka and Hunter S. Thompson this incredibly slick animation was created by String Theory for online bookseller Good Books International that donates 100% of its profits to Oxfam. There’s another version including narration of Hunter S. Thompson that probably explains the visuals a bit better, but I personally found it a bit distracting. (via vimeo)

Fresh Guacamole: A New Stop Motion Short from PES stop motion food cooking animation

In his first stop motion short in over a year, animator PES (previously) has just released this brilliant companion piece to his groundbreaking 2008 cooking video Western Spaghetti. I’m happy to report this new clip is every bit as wonderful as his earlier works. PES has an uncanny ability to utilize the most unexpected common objects to represent foods, animals and other things—those dice!! (via junk culture)

Fine: The Birth, Life, and Death of a Soldier (As Painted on a Hand) war video art animation

Fine is a new animated short by Milan-based animator Virgilio Villoresi that tells the brief story of a soldier as painted on and pantomimed by his hands. The whole idea is a little silly in its description but Villoresi’s attention to detail in the painting, gestures, and editing really elevate this short into something pretty remarkable. (via vimeo)

Love Is Making Its Way Back Home: A Stop Motion Animation Using 12,000 Sheets of Construction Paper stop motion paper animation

This great new video for Josh Ritter’s Love Is Making Its Way Back Home was directed by Erez Horovitz and involves the meticulous animation of over 12,000 laser-cut pieces of construction paper. Via Etsy:

A team of nearly twenty artists, editors, directors and product assistants ushered the video into being. The group started with storyboarding and computer animation before converting the digital graphics to paper cutouts (frame by frame), photographing those 12,000 cutouts and then stitching them together into four minutes of paper animation.

You can learn more about how it was done and see some great behind the scenes shots on Josh Ritter’s blog. (via etsy)

After organizing their own bookshelf earlier this year, Sean Ohlenkamp and wife Lisa re-doubled their efforts for Type Books in Toronto. After several sleepless nights of animating with a crew of over 20 people, the Joy of Books was born. Music composed especially for the short by Grayson Matthews. See many more books here.
