are you a blamer?

A lot of people jump to blaming others rather than dealing with the situation at hand. This delightfully illustrated animation explains it perfectly. This video is a collaboration between Breńe Brown Ph.D. (researcher & storyteller), RSA (21st Century Enlightenment) and animator Katy Davis (amazingly talented freelance animator and illustrator).

Sit back, relax and challenge yourself to the question “am I a blamer?” and if the answer is yes… start doing something about it.

This video optimises excellent communication through short, concise story telling using simple and beautiful visuals.

As an illustrator I’m particularly in love with Katy Davis’s work (AKA Gobbylynne) and you can check out her work on her site gobblynne.com, on her facebook page or her twitter profile.

If you have any other beautiful, poinient or amazing videos to share, please get in touch via Twitter, Instagram or by email :)

artists i like: rachel ryle

How much do I love Rachel Ryle’s work… let me count the ways. Beautiful and cheerful animation coupled with tiny tales that have to be watched over and over.
Follow Rachel’s work on her website, Facebook, Instagram or on Twitter.

Coffee anyone? I love making my own coffee at home in my caffettiera… but this is so much more beautiful than when I do it… got milk?

These quirky animations are full of magic… Abracadabra!

I adore the play on scale and the cross over between the 2D & 3D realms… Are you feeling lucky punk?

A little playful sandcastle fun just in time for Summer (in the southern hemisphere that is)… however, I’ve never been able to disassociate the song Mr Sandman by The Chordettes from Halloween II… still creeps me out LOL!

sebastien tellier – love… a beautiful & trippy annimated video

Sebastien Tellier is a French multi-instrumentalist who sings in English + French + Italian. If you don’t already love him… I think you will. I particularly adore this clip… do yourself a favour and get lost in the illustrated fantasy land where clothing is clearly not allowed.

Sebastian-tellier-love

The animation is by Sébastien Eballard + Ruben Sellem + Frédéric Venet and is breathtakingly beautiful. I love the colours, the characters and the trippy storyline. If only all of my dreams were drawn in this style and were as peaceful and meditative.
