Really love the artwork McKean produces, managed to talk with him this summer and it was a real eye opener. Is an amazing example of type and imagery, nothing in accidental, every little mark has a deep meaning to the story.
I have always been a fan of his style of design and illustration, simple colours that really enthesis the feel of the words as well as the illustration.
An amazing dark artist and responcible for some of my favorite animation and graphic novals. A very unique style with pop referenced that i can really relate to.
As long as anyone can remember, the coming of The Undertaker has meant the coming of death. Until one day the grim promise fails and tension builds as the God fearing townsfolk of Backwater wait for someone to die
Antonia is a 12 year old girl. She often has daydreams, in which she wonders of in to a magical far away forest, were she hides from the problems of the real world. One day, however, her father takes drastic measures and she has to face a decision.
Is your inner peace an utopian state until you have finally escaped the grip of the society and its rules? Or is affirmation a faster way to your personal luck? And what are you supposed to do, if you have to answer this question at the age of 12?
In the Animated Short “The Forest”, the protagonist has to cope with this question and her hostile environment and finds a simple but radical solution.
This is actually such a beautiful story. It shows that there is no individuality. In the class, they were all doing the exact same thing and getting the same marks. Also, look at the teacher, he has a mask on his face so we do not know what lies underneath. Did you notice that when they broke free, they all went the same way, showing that even though they had freedom, they couldn’t do anything their own way because they don’t know how to. At the end, he saved the dog he watches die everyday.
