Drawer of drawings, singer of songs, deziner of zines and doodler of doodles Joey Fourr has never gotten over that frantic childhood habit of drawing in the margins, letting the pure unbridled thoughts of a dreamer’s mind spill out onto pages of paper. His big, messy, psychedelic images take us back to a simpler time when all we wanted to do was carve elaborate cartoons into our desks and sack off learning maths.
In spite of that there’s an educational element to Joey’s work that some may not have noticed, preferring to concentrate on the irreverent humour. In his recent film Get A Lief, Joey’s helpfully decided to teach the basics of animation, creating a two-and-a-half-minute epic from 144 sheets of paper drawn, scanned and looped thrice to create a mad explosion of moving colours and characters. See kids, just a cheap set of pens and a battered scanner is all you need for animated feature film success. That and the patience of a saint.
