But if the video is delightfully silly the work is seriously good; from gorgeous visuals for the Misteur Valaire album to a hand-crafted cover for the Financial Times Weekend Magazine’s recent graphics special. The coming together of two such talented creatives can only lead to good things. That and fish fights, obviously…
