‘Maker vs. Marker’ Breathes New Life Into YouTube Animation [VIDEO]

A magician in the form of an illustrator named Don Hertzfeldt changed my life. His Academy Award-nominated film “Rejected” blew my mind and made me realize that, with animation, the possibilities were just about endless.

Of course, I never actually did anything in illustration and my life has suffered for it. I’ve done a lot of gritty, gritty things that I am not proud of, instead of just sitting there with a pen and paper honing a respectable and street-legal craft. No, it’s safe to say that I now have to pray there is no God, just so I don’t have to account for the wretched mutilations I have performed on my mortal soul [Jeff sighs and takes another drag on a filterless cigarette].

But, giving me a renewed hope in … something … there is this fantastic and fun video of an illustrator fighting with the warrior he just created. I don’t want to spoil it, but the warrior actually wins — though we are left to consider that there could be a round two (ohh shit … guess I did spoil it … well, fucking terrific. I guess there’s just one more stain upon this broken twisted mass of doomed flesh. So sorry to intrude on your perfect existence.

Seriously though, enjoy the video!

Also, you seem like you enjoy animation … it’s that shirt you’re wearing … so … you’ll love these links:
