“Stare Into the Sun” by Ian Stevenson

UK based Ian Stevenson is a cartoonist disguised as an “artist”. Whatever he calls himself, I like what he does. Here’s one of his groovy music videos from a few years ago. This’ll put you in a good mood:

    I have to say, some of the concepts are interesting, but I don’t like this at ALL. The animation and art almost completely lack appeal, and if not for the song, I wouldn’t be able to sit through it for more than a few seconds.

    Nope, not even the slightest bit my cup of tea.

    It reminds me of a Freakies cereal commercial. IN HELL!!!

    Cool animation. Not for me personally, but fun to watch.

    Hmmmm……Yellow Submarine animated by someone that wasn’t there in 1968 and thinks this was what it was all about because he has several friends that love the 1960’s.

    AKA: I don’t think so.

    It’s hard for me to not be a little critical. The character designs are not appealing (to me). Basic animation principles aren’t used. Difficult to watch. It’s a missed opportunity because it’s certain someone spent a lot of time with this.

    If I take a show like Adventure Time, the characters are surprisingly charming in spite of enormous breaks from convention. But this… I can’t go for that.

    ‘no can do’.
