Observed this week, there's an(other) animated alphabet, skeletons all the way down, Weezer's comeback, and a new animated show. Enjoy!
Typography: Louis Mallart's animated alphabet
Sparse geometric forms, a black-and-white palette and smooth animation make this animated alphabet a pleasure to watch, letters looping in and out. Good work by design student Louis Mallart. Pair with Trade Gothic Animated, featured in Observed #5.
Illustration: The Infinite Corpse, an endless comic strip
Inspired by the Surrealist parlour game Exquisite Corpse and a 1990s collaborative comic book, The Infinite Corpse is an endless web comic about a skeleton called Corpsey, with contributors adding three panels at a time to the 'infinite canvas'.
Music: The new Weezer album
Not much to say about this, other than I'm enjoying Weezer's latest release, Everything Will Be Alright In the End. If, like me, you have fond 90s memories of Buddy Holly and Island in the Sun, this album is worth a listen.
Video: Bee and Puppycat
Last year, Channel Frederator's Cartoon Hangover released an animated short, the pilot episode of Bee and PuppyCat, about a not-quite-grown-up girl out of a job and her mysterious magical feline-canine friend. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the full series went into production, and Episodes One and Two are now online. Lots of Adventure Timey-video gamey fun. Go watch it.
