I’ve been an avid reader of Montreal graphic novelist and illustrator Michel Rabagliati’s semi-autobiographical ‘Paul‘ books for a few years (I’ve read each one about three times!), so it was a huge pleasure when Michel agreed to share some insight with us on Ape on the Moon.

I’m really liking this beautifully crafted animation from illustrator Danae Diaz and animated by Benjamin Karré entitled ‘Caffeine’. The film’s thin line work and isometric perspectives make it very delicate and a pleasure to watch, with a cool and very appropriate soundtrack.

This wholly modern fantasy world was created by Rotterdam-based Erwin Kho as part of the exhibition, ‘Far from Fong’, which presented work by six Dutch/Chinese artists in relation to two pieces by fashion designer Fong-Leng. We like the contrast of the soft pastels against the sharp, geometric edges of his 3D digital designs. We find out more about how he constructs his work and how this project came about.
