Juanjo Guarnido's Rock Video

Juanjo Guarnido, the Spanish illustrator who co-created the comic Blacksad was formerly a Disney animator. Last March he launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to direct an animated music video for the Swedish rock band Freak Kitchen. The resulting video features a lot of Guarnido's hand-drawn animation. The effect is aggressive, abrasive, and outrageous: perfect for the spirit of the band. (Link to video)

Funny to see some of the nuances we have come to associate with Disney animation in a rock video.

Watched it. Love it! Hypnotically appealing :)

I am happy that this art form still has talented practitioners and is not being killed off by 3D. This is a beautiful work.

Not so sure about the music, but it did suit the animation.
