It took her a second to work up the courage, but she did it!


Here’s some incredible and absolutely beautiful concept art and character design from URBANCE - which is now looking for backing on Kickstarter.

"In a post-modern city torn by street violence, sex is prohibited because of a deadly genetical virus. Men and women have grown apart, hating each other until two young rebels, disowned by their own gangs, are leading the fight to live their love freely."

In the crumbling inner city, sex kills. The urban landscape is split in two — men on one side, women on the other— opposing each other. COEVO seems to be the only hope: a government medical treatment developed to cure every single boy and girl except that those wearables haven’t produced the expected results yet…

Born among this lost generation of frustrated gangs, Kenzell and Lesya live each day as their last, defying anyone who stands in the way of their union. Like modern avatars of Romeo and Juliet, they will have to choose between love or their kind, Passion VS Reason, Deadly Eves VS Neo Blasterz… In their flamboyant relationship lies the premises of a revolution against the authorities, the vicious Mediators and their separatist laws. Rebels can change the world…

I’ve promoted quite a few Kickstarter’s on here and by far this is the one that excites me the most. More than anything the animation industry needs something like Urbance to come in and break down it’s walls; it’s fresh, diverse, incredibly crafted and I think, it’ll be absolutely ground breaking!

Head on over to the Urbance Kickstarter page and send them some love.

Celebrate Fall with Amazing Leaf Art!


When TED-Ed animators were tasked with animating a lesson about detritus, they challenged themselves to make all of the visuals out of dead stuff. It sure helped that they had a library of dried leaves to work with!

Check out these lovely little leaf creatures, and get inspired to make your own:





And, thanks to the power of animation, they were able to bring a vast collection of dead stuff back to life!


'Tis officially the season! Go grab some fallen leaves of your own, and see what kinds of creatures you can bring to life. Happy foraging, and happy first day of fall!
