Belly by Julia Pott



I've been a long time fan of Julia's animated movies, but her latest tops the cake for me. Incredibly heartfelt, Julia draws the coming of age story of Oscar and his experience with leaving something he loves behind. Like him, I can still feel this emotion in the pit of my stomach. Kudos, Julia Pott.

12 Drawings A Day



This animation by Denis Chapon is epic. There can be nothing more important for you to do right now than to watch this.

In 2008, with no exact plan in place, Denis just took to doodling on the backside of used paper. He made 12 drawings a day (that equaled one second of animation). And then, each of the following days, he took the last three drawings from the day before and kept on animating. Three years later, that slow accumulation of little bits of effort over time rendered an incredible movie that's captivating to watch and completely filled with spontaneity. What an incredible victory.

Three Brothers



Cartoon Characters is a collaboration by three Dutton brothers: Mike Dutton (the artist), Henry Dutton (the music creator) and lastly, David Dutton (who master-minded the whole project).

David explains that he started off the project by raiding "all of [Mike's] sketchbooks; getting scans or shooting the more awkward pages" with his Canon 7D camera and that's the great thing about this video, you can see the personality and ever-changing tone in Mike's sketchbook as it gracefully animates frame by frame.

Dwellings



I was planning on doing a post about someone else today, but then I found this amazing little film by Aaron Wendel on Vimeo. Immediately I forgot what I was planning to write today and just drowned in this beautiful animation. Now, as soon as I finish this post, I'm going back on Aaron's profile to watch the rest of his work. See you there!

Warm and Playful



Yellow, yellow! Nice little film by Caleb Wood with a beautiful animation and a perfect atmosphere for this warm summer days. Gentle meadow in all its simplicity, and a little creature that explores it... Just beautiful!

Sidewalk Scribble



Animator/Filmmaker Peter Lowey from Australia does an incredible job on this short film. Give it a play, I've already watched it three times this morning.

We're All In This Together

Process is everything to me. It's much of the reason why I started Doodlers Anonymous. I love seeing behind the scenes and early thoughts of artists, writers, any creative for that matter. Getting a glimpse of sketchbook pages no one was meant to see, or storyboards that show development of what worked or didn't work is many times more inspiring than the final outcome.

Three Legged Legs has done an incredible job of documenting their collaboration with Droga5 to bring to life an animated ad spot for Method Cleaners and Virgin America. The spot itself is a minute-long animated ride in the sky with illustrated characters and exaggerated stereotypes. Their process of going "…from a super quick shitty thumbnail doodle-fest, to a more elaborate After Effects animatic," is so wonderful to see come to life, and you'll love the end result.

Here are some of the process doodles, but make sure to watch the rough cut animation and more at their site.
