honey, i’m ho-o-ome!
after that delightful, unplanned hiatus of over two months, i decided that it was time to return to the land of DearDeer Design… and so here i am 🙂 if you care to know what i’ve been up to instead of sharing beautiful pieces of inspiration with the interwebs, head on over here. that should cover all my bases, and leave me free to share some AMAZING animation with you! but first:
animation |ˌanəˈmā sh ən|noun
1 the state of being full of life or vigor; liveliness : they started talking with animation.
• chiefly archaic: the state of being alive.
2 the technique of filming successive drawings or positions of puppets or models to create an illusion of movement when the movie is shown as a sequence :[as adj. ] animation techniques | animations as backdrops for live action.
• (also computer animation) the manipulation of electronic images by means of a computer in order to create moving images.
i like that definition. a lot.
and now, moving on… the other day i was perusing YouTube like the little addict that i am, and i happened to stumble across an animation of Kate Nash’s song Nicest Thing. now, firstly, that SONG is, um, the nicest thing. if you have not experienced the delight of Kate Nash (don’t worry, i was the same not so long ago) pleasepleaseplease do yourself a favour and go listen to her music and love her. #rantover. where was i? ah yes, the sa-weet little animation 🙂 i cannot put into words how ridiculously awesome it is – just experience it for yourself, mmkay? hit that play button! do it!
and then, after loving THAT one, i manically searched for more sweetness. and was not disappointed with this lovely animation of Laura Marling’s Alas I Cannot Swim…
…or this animation of Coldplay’s Yellow…
but my ABSOLUTE favourite has to be this wonderful animation of KT Tunstall’s Throw Me A Rope, which i hadn’t heard before watching the animation. my goodness gracious me. i cannot stand all of this awesomeness.
are you, too, not in love now, dear readers? all of these sweeties were animated by someone mysterious and marvellous who goes by the YouTube Account name of musicANDmuffins. can’t deny the fabulousness of that combo… or of that mysterious muffinsy, musicky, animatedly-amazing person 🙂
