“The Elegant Gentleman’s Guide to Knife Fighting” by Doug Bayne, Ben Baker and Trudy Cooper

The Elegant Gentleman’s Guide to Knife Fighting is an Australian sketch show. They came to me and said, “You love Terry Gilliam, right?” Yes. Yes I do. I made them a bunch of animated bumpers—these are some of my favorites.

Made by Doug Bayne, Ben Baker and Trudy Cooper, 2013.

    You can seem more of Doug / Trudy and Ben’s work in Barnacle Bill’s Semi Factual Nautical Tales: http://www.abc.net.au/arts/stories/s3861693.htm part animation and part live action, part factual and part hysterical.

    Doug and Trudy also make the highly NSFW webcomic Oglaf – http://oglaf.com Did I mention it was NSFW? Also very funny.

  • The show was a decent sketch show, too, so give it a try!

    You know, the woman in American Gothic is supposed to be the farmer’s daughter.
