    Nicolas Ménard: Des Exercices de Lèvres

Animation: Nicolas Ménard, former Student of the Month has awesome updates!

Posted by James Cartwright,

In March last year Canadian animator Nicolas Ménard was studying at the Université du Québec à Montréal, making his way through a graphic design degree. We crowned him Student of the Month for his beautifully abstract animations and strangely beguiling characters. Since then he’s relocated to the RCA to pursue a masters in animation, maintaining the same creative rigour as he did during his undergraduate study with some remarkably polished results.

When he’s not applying beautifully stylised calligraphic movement to the custom-drawn type treatments of his RCA peers he’s experimenting with sound design and creating weird anthropomorphic beasts that flex and congeal on screen. We wouldn’t want to rub it in that you saw him here first, but, y’know, you DID see him here first.
