Sock is a sweet but somewhat unstable teen who commits suicide after the accidental murder of his own parents. In Hell he meets Mephistopheles, the amicable manager of the underworld, who offers him a job: Sock is to become a demon, tasked with haunting humans and driving them to suicide. At first this seems like Sock’s dream job—a way he can finally act on his desires without consequence—but after meeting his first target, a disinterested highschooler named Jonathan, he finds himself with another desire that just might be stronger… and just might have a consequence.
Welcome to Hell (2013)
OH MY STARS I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS
the designs and characters are fantastic (smooth-talking, pun-making Mephistopheles was my insta-fave), the premise is completely up my alley (ugh quirky/black comedy takes on Hell are my weakness), and the animation, writing and voice acting are spectacular!
if the subject matter isn’t uncomfortable for you, this is a MUST-SEE especially if you’re into cartoons like Jimmy Two-Shoes, it’s very much in that sort of vein.
Wow this gif set is taking off! And I love seeing nice comments on reblogs, thankyou!
When an old post randomly starts getting a ton of notes
GOOD FUCKING BYE
Well, I have for you gorgeous illustrations to Pushkin’s poem “Eugene Onegin”.
Authors, Anna and Elena Balbusso, are our contemporaries.
Natalia Goncharova - Illustration to the Tale of Tsar Saltan by Alexander Pushkin, 1921.
Stills from Adam 2, a feature-length animated film by Jan Lenica, master Polish animator and graphic designer. As far as I know this is currently unavailable and I can’t manage to find a copy floating around the internet. It looks absolutely stunning, a tantalising glimpse of his wonderful graphics come to life. His other short films are well worth tracking down, Dom, his collaboration with Walerian Borowczyk and Labirynt are both available on the Anthology of Polish Animated Film DVD. Also Rhinoceros from 1965 is currently on Vimeo.
See some more scans in a 2011 post at Cardboard Cutout Sundown.
