Maybe everyone had seen this already, but I only saw it for the first time the other night.. a great little extra at the end of a Simpsons episode, where they go all Edward Gorey.. Brilliant!
The only online clip I could find had subtitles, so we may be asked to remove this at some point.. until then, enjoy..

The Blog of Kells - Cartoon Saloon‘s production blog for their Oscar-nominated film The Secret of Kells – was a fascinating 8 year read into the behind the scenes of making an animated feature film from start to finish, warts n’ all! So I’m delighted to discover that they’ve created another production blog for their current feature – Song of the Sea (of whom Scamp’s very own mr steve mccarthy has recently joined as part of the key background team).

It’s the work of Temujin Doran, who wrote it in his final year of art school as ‘a fictitious congratulatory letter written by a proud tutor to a recent graduate’.

We’re excited to see what Temujin does next.
James Jirat Patradoon is an Australian illustrator who made me excited about animated gifs again.

The above brilliance was made for an exhibition of his in The Tate in Glebe, Australia. But with work like this he could easily show the work in The Other Tate.
