Ok, discovery of the day - week even - not to mention the perfect gift to keep my partner in crime’s chin up… we’ll get there baby girl! Anyway, the aforementioned discovery is the Brazilian website Zupi, which is basically where all the exceptional artistic talents of Brazil go to post their portfolios in hope of recognition - which I have to say is a wicked idea. Well, Daniel Rodrigues a.k.a. Semanas from Sao Paulo, you have been recognised and we’ll certianly be keeping tabs on you from now on! Seriously people this animated short is nothing short (Ha!) of extraordinary - just check out this soundtrack -one of the best I’ve ever heard in minature, plus the illustartions aren’t bad - and by not bad I mean they most certainly be the shit! Now normally I’d post pictors apres le jump but I couldn’t help but sneak a little treat to to entice y’all further!
Go see! Go see! Go see!

But now I’ve just found the next best thing…YMCK! So, I’ve saved a bunch of thier videos only to be watched when i’m on the edge of throwing something, also because my eyes are hurting and I cant watch anymore. Japanese trio, YMCK create Chiptune music accompnied by 8bit pixel animation videos and are apparently inspired by 50/60’s jazz. So if you don’t know about Chiptune (like I didn’t half an hour ago) let me tell you….its huge! Well it has been going since the 80’s – the “Golden Age” of old computers, gameboys, NESes, Comodore 64’s and Ataris. If you fancy having a go yourself I’ve taken the honour of attaching a DIY video for you. x (Fe)
