Hello. I am the director/animator guy of Toh Kay’s With Any Sort Of Certainty video. You may have seen it. In fact, 55+k of you did in the first 48 hours. That is until the fine folks at (asshat record label) issued a takedown complaint to Youtube and Vimeo, for Tomas’ own original song and my own original animation. They took it off of my Vimeo account. That felt… weird. At this point, (asshat record label) is working their hardest to make sure the video goes away, possibly for good. The issues between Tomas and (asshat record label) go back through many acrimonious years, and I just happened to have my own work dragged into it by a record label trying to prove a point. They have lawyers. I do not. So I can’t fight them and it may take a long time for it to get ironed out enough that I can repost it again.
I worked very hard on this video. It means a lot to me. And I was so pleased and gratified to know that it meant a lot to some of you who saw it. Thanks so much for your emails and stuff. You guys are great. Both Tomas and I will have the video on our sites, but who knows how long that will last. And we both want as many people to see/hear it as possible, and to have it readily available for new people to see and hopefully connect with and enjoy.
And so, here is a download link for the full 1920x1080 video. It should be good for about 2 weeks. Enjoy it. Upload it anywhere and everywhere. Remix it. Torrent it. Blog it. Tumblr it. Tweet it. Steal it. Give it. Um… print it out and post it on walls? I don’t know. Whatever the spirit moves you to do.
Neither of us want to see this thing we’ve worked on go away. You can’t ever really erase something from the internet, especially music and art. It just gets out there, that’s what’s so great about it. It lasts. And with your help it should only be a quick and easy Google search away from anyone who wants to see it.

Illustration for the The Wander Postcard Project by Justin Mezzell an illustrator and designer currently based in Orlando, Florida. Don’t miss all the other projects presented in Justin’s portfolio cause it worth the look.
I illustrated some of my favourite Aardman characters, with the minimum detail that I could get away with and here they are! Can you name all 10 correctly!?

Discovered the work of Lucas Brooking yesterday. Fantastic art direction & animation.
You might already know that work from Jessica Hische, but for those who’ve never seen it before… ;-)
This beauty here is the BÖIKZMÖIND ‘Boik’, lovingly put together by the excellent Freshtripe! This project has been ongoing for a long time and has had it’s fair share of trials & tribulations but it was finally finished last weekend and was proudly displayed for the first time at the Bristol Bespoked bike show at the Freshtripe stand!
My favourite part is the white-on-white graphics which have been applied to the frame of the bike, it’s only under closer inspection in the right light that the frame reveals statistics from the films creation!
You can see it in the flesh at the BÖIKZMÖIND Screening + DVD/Book launch + Q&A which is happening this coming Easter Monday, 3pm at The Watershed cinema here in Bristol! There’s not many tickets left, so grab yours here and you can also pre-order your DVD/Book to pick-up from the launch too!
Click here to read all about the components & story behind this beautiful bike, and a huge huge thanks to Jamie & Paul at Freshtripe for making the bike a reality!
