Against the Grain

I had to share this with you for three reasons. First it’s wonderful and secondly it is evocative of all those sets of colored pencils I demolished when I was a child. Finally, it made me wonder whether, even if I had the technical knowhow, if I would have the patience and tenacity to sit down and create something as painstaking as this. The answer to that question was a resounding no!

This is the video to accompany Against the Grain, the new track by emerging indie-folk artist Hudson. It really is a catchy song and it can only be hoped that this animation helps it to become the hit it really should be. Heads up to both Hudson and animator Dropbear (aka Jonathan Chong).
