Animation: Shishiya Mazaki's dancing is bound to cheer you up on a Tuesday

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Well this may well be the happiest animation ever to grace the pages of It’s Nice That. Sit back and watch as a fun, watercolour girl prances through Tokyo with some kind of 1960s art-house dance moves and some snacks to munch on as she goes. This film was made a few years ago and has since won a handful of animation awards and has been screened at places like SXSW.

Shishi Yamazaki’s talent for creating a flowing aesthetic made up of everyday artistic tools is unparalleled, mixed with the sheer oddness of the content, is nothing short of joyous. She was also responsible for this extraordinary animation which sees her devour pink blobs until she gets a funny tummy and promptly soils herself, which is 100 per cent worth a watch.
