"...a Gary Larson cartoon, only animated."
I am returning to the InterWebs after a (brief, year-end) hiatus to post this short. It was sent to me by a friend who suspected that it would be of interest to me.
He was correct, and in spades.
It's called “Moses of the Artificial Leg,” and I'm sure y'all will be charmed by it, as well. (Plus, here's the original inspiration, for context/deep background/because it's a ton of fun.)
This one's called Fox And The Whale, and it's a really wonderful bit of animation. Robin Joseph, its creator, has combined some impressively photorealistic images and backdrops with an entirely unrealistic (but charming) fox on a guest for an elusive whale—a metaphor, perhaps, of its search for something else?
"In a dystopian world where books are banned and fossil fuels completely consumed, the ruling corporations confiscated all the books to burn them and generate energy. However, in New York City there is an underground group of ex scientists, writers and artists who remember the books and risk their lives to find and save them from being destroyed."
