Every now and then I enjoy a fun trip down memory lane. This time, my travels were courtesy of Danny Martin and his movie characters drawn on US Postal Service stickers. I'm loving the texture the stickers added to the black and white drawings of some of my favorite movies from when I was a teenager (The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Ghostbusters) as well as a recent favorite (There Will Be Blood). Go take a gander, no postage stamp required.
I just found this video on Vimeo (haha, that rhymed!) by Brainbow and enjoyed it immensely. It's three short hand-drawn 1,600 frame animation composed into one. It's very simply drawn, which I absolutely love, partially colored in with highlighters.
The first video '5 4 3 2...' is a series of continuous Hollywood explosions edited into a simple beat. The second, "Galleria" is a cut from Terminator 2. And the third, which is my favorite (and starts at 2:25), is an original gangsta rap with lyrics provided by the Governator himself and arranged by Harry McGowan.
Get your headphones on. Enjoy the pops of color, fun sound effects and some of Arnold's infamous lines.
