The Mushroom – a pub animation by Julio del Rio

A post on re-purposing comics and illustration into animation

Following the techniques of Fran Krause (Moonraker, Utica Cartoon) who created the art for a short film “Nosy Bear” in his sketchbook, Julio del Rio did this short film with similar techniques. The artist drew all the images on one sheet of paper while sitting at the pub and then composed them on the computer later on at home. The great thing about using this technique is that it could be done anywhere: a convention, pub, park, slow times at work, etc.
