German-born artist Antoni Tudisco crafts 3D and video works that are packed with surreal scenes and bombastic activity. His personal work has a stranger, humorous edge, as he offers snippets on his Instagram page. In a statement, he offers some insight on an early interest in art:

“I’m a fan of extraordinary things ever since I was a child. I had my own world as a kid. I started to sketch during lessons when I was attending elementary school, [and] I didn’t really listen to the teacher, just drew and scribbled. I guess that characteristic of mine developed into being creative and original today. … I tried taking another step [up] and tried doing 3D designs and videos. It was hard at first because i had to understand and do everything all alone, but because of hard work and enthusiasm, it turned out to be a success…”

Tudisco’s corporate clients include Nike, MTV, Audi, Adobe, BMW, and KLM.

About 30 seconds into one of Jake Fried's hand-drawn animations, you're hit with the sense of how much time it took the artist to draw each frame of these intricate, multi-layered works. Fried works with a combination of art supplies and household materials: ink and gouache are paired with coffee and white out. Try doing such minuscule, detailed line work with the tip of a white out pen. Those things were not designed for the type of precision Fried somehow manages to elicit from them. View the animations after the jump.
In Tabaimo's worlds, nothing is as ordinary as it appears. Light bulbs morph into moons, walls dissolve, and trees turn into snakes. These eldritch environments capture the viewer who stands at the center, and transports him into an unknown underbelly of the everyday. The artist achieves a totaling effect by manipulating architectural elements and allowing hand-drawn animations that reference both Japanese manga and traditional Edo-period prints, to organically bleed out of the two-dimensional plane and into the exhibition space. The result is a pseudo-theater where the viewer is the main actor among anthropomorphic objects and a cast of characters, whose interplay raises social, political, and gendered topics of contemporary import.
Chris Reccardi, fine artist, designer, animation director, character designer, and musician, has passed away at the age of 54 yesterday. Among many other properties and series, he was highly regarded for his work on The Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, Tiny Toon Adventures, and The Ren & Stimpy Show. For the later, he famously composed the anthemic "Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy.”
What makes Kouhei Nakama’s animations tantalizing is how each builds or deconstructs the face with alien processes. They’re comprised of swarming creatures or layers of liquid skin melting off a smiling face. In an era when every digital design student is showing off their realistic renders, Nakama’s artistry offers the unexpected in his engrossing portraits.
