Mr Kaplin—The Idea Machine

The Idea Machine is a cracking little short from directors and animators Mr Kaplin with some very slick sound design curtsey of Box of Toys.

Mr Kaplin have kept their standard of work equally high having recently updated their folio with new work.

Their recent short Noise for IdN magazine’s motion gallery feature Black & White, combines MoGraph and motion capture techniques into a captivating short that’s one of our favourite examples of their work.


Robin Davey

Robin Davey, master of seamless, detailed and quirky animated illustrations. I could sit watching the same three seconds for hours on end hypnotised by the repetitiveness of it all.

As well as producing quirky animated gifs he’s also turns his hand to more traditional short animations for commercials, apps and games.

I love this short video showing a still frame break down for work he did on The Tate Movie Project.


Olka Osadzinska

Polish illustrator Olka Osadzinska combines a semi-pixel rendering style to create a lovely bright and intimate look to her work. Combined with her ability to compose capture close moments between her figures it’s no wonder it lends itself to lifestyle, youth and fashion brands like Hugo Boss, Nike and Rebook.

When she’s not busy depicting the lifestyle of a fashionista she organises one of the most successful art fairs in Warsaw the Art Yard Sale and continues to exhibit work worldwide.


Jessica Dance

Let’s welcome the start of the weekend with a little bit of joyful work courtesy of prop designer, stylist and art director Jessica Dance.

Jessica’s charming work comes from combining materials through handmade techniques that works really well for fashion and lifestyle brands such as Mulberry and Vogue. Working with lambs wool is where she’s most at home and clearly comes through in her over-sized knitted objects.

Recently she’s teamed up with moving image maestro Robert Francis Muller to create a new collaborative studio, Get Mullered and Dance that combines both their amazing talents. Ones to watch.



Since Young’s beginning a few years back with their successful illustration and publishing project Learn Something Every Day they’ve shifted their focus towards animation and moving image. And they’re doing a great job of it as well. Translating their colourful and charming style into cute and loveable pieces of moving image.

Their recent work on Midas with Network Warrington shows them at their best working with the talented illustrator Peter Donnelly to tell the story of a tragic love story in a gorgeous American 50’s cartoon feel.

For a glimpse into the rest of Young’s work watch their short showreel below.
