This is a hand-drawn, extraordinarily detailed, masterpiece by Jake Fried. Jack started as a painter, but his work has shifted into the temporal dimension; these pictures move, and then some. It’s an animated kaleidoscope. Give your eyes a work out and watch this!
One of the best things about running Cartoon Food are the chance discoveries…like when Pedro Eboli mentioned the Russian animator Konstantin Bronzit. His work is stunning, endlessly inventive and shot through with a mordant Russian humour.
We featured it in Pedro’s 10 Questions below, but we think it’s worth a post of its own, so here’s At The Ends Of The Earth by Konstantin Bronzit:
You may already have seen this as it’s been doing the rounds, but it’s so delicious we really can’t resist sharing it.
As Hayao Miyazaki announced that The Wind Rises would be his final feature, The Simpsons pay tribute to the master filmmaker in this fondly irreverent scene.
A bit sombre on a cold Tuesday, this is the fantastic Mountain Ash by Jake Armstrong. Jake is Brooklyn based and part of the intriguing collective, Late Night Work Club http://latenightworkclub.com/
The Late Night Work Club is a rotating collective of indie animators. People grabbing time between jobs, classes and after-hours to work on great non-commercial animation.
Here’s a trailer for their anthology Ghost Stories:
Be sure to check out their website to watch the whole thing.
Pedro Eboli created and directed this segment for the collective film “Cospe ou Engolervilha”, organized by animatorMarcelo Marão.

If the rest of the film’s like this we’ll have two tickets for the screening (row four, aisle seats please, we’re very particular).
Happy weird weekend! So we’ve thrown our line out into the great ocean of animation and hooked ourselves this deliriously surreal gem from Chinese animator Lei Lei.
Western Spagehetti is another stop-motion animated gem from the awesome PES. We love it!
