Almost as a rebuttal to the over-saturation of computer animation in everything from TV to advertising to film, a trend is emerging for beautifully executed hand-drawn animation. Whether it's the work of BLU or the Yellow Sticky Notes guy or even the Amazing Sand Artist, these great pieces of home-made artwork are popping up all over YouTube.
The one featured in this post is one of my favorites. I saw it at the Academy Awards screeners (it was nominated for best animated short). Penwork is by James Braitwaite, a young New York animator who visualized a conversation that his friend (and producer) Jerry Levitan had as a young boy with John Lennon. It's an actual recording of the conversation.
