Fast-flowing creations by master of hand-drawn animation, Jake Fried

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Seeing as it’s nearly autumn and the sky is clouding over, I’ll just take the liberty of whisking you away into a dark chasm of snowy trees, brick walls and terrifying woodland via the impressively fast-paced animations of Jake Fried. In his latest animation entitled Sick Leave, Jake drags us naked and screaming through a world made of ink and white-out to enjoy the scenery that he has so painstakingly created. It’s not as torturous as it sounds, it’s actually extremely enjoyable, and one of the most stubborn and original styles we’ve seen in a long time.
