Edson Oda has created this quite clever short about a bounty hunter paid to kill death. I love the animation, the art style, the music, pretty much everything about this.

This isn’t Edson’s first animation of this type his VImeo page also has this video called “The Writer” which was created for Quenetin Tarantino’s Emerging Artist Contest to promote the film Django Unchained.

Bravest Warriors: Animated Space Adventure Series by the Creator of Adventure Time

Bravest Warriors

I spent my evening last night watching these 5 minute episodes of Bravest Warriors, the new animated space adventure by Pendleton Ward the creator of Adventure Time.

I’ve only recently been inducted into the Adventure time cult, but I’ve fast grown to love the show, these episodes have everything that makes adventure time fun, just condensed into an even shorter time span and…

IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!

The episodes are to air exclusively online on the Bravest Warriors YouTube channel, and Boom Studios are releasing comics based on the show that you can buy now!

The Art Style is adventure time, the humour is adventure time, the voices are for the most part adventure time, and it has a chip tune theme song, what’s not to like, I’ve embedded the first few episodes here so you don’t have to go anywhere to watch them, you can thank me later.

Modern Myths

Today’s Shirt Woot t-shirt re-imagines the legend of Zelda in the art style commonly found on ancient Greek pottery.

I find this oddly apt given Link’s predilection with smashing pots.
