i can't even begin to imagine how much work went into that. RESPECT!!!!

beautiful stuff, lovingly crafted.

very nice. i hope it will begin to talk to me, when i watch it again. also, i will have to concentrate on what he´s singing to see if there´s an interaction.

reminds me of bruce bickford`s (mutative) animation:

damn... Total RESPECT indeed!

RIP OFFF!!!!! this is not original! He ripped off the art work of James Patterson. You have seen some of his work on VH1 etc. click on # 17 or any of his work. its not just the morphing forms, but the whole style, the abstract semi functional forms. the weird surreal images. its a rip. no respect

salad fingers, August 27, 2005 at 2:52:02 AM CEST

i think killakillafornia must be in some kind of psychedelic state to think that VanGaalen is ripping off patterson.

but thanks to his madness we have been introduced to patterson who is totally awesome.

and hey, killakillafornia - you'd better learn to relegate before you regulate. what?

dickensian_hero, August 27, 2005 at 2:56:17 AM CEST

who would win in a fight? patterson or vangaalen? you'd probably think patterson. you'd be wrong though. it's vangaalen.

Thanks for the link to Patterson’s work. Its great – I had never seen it before. However, having had a flick through some of his work I see that he relies on repetition to create these creative motifs and the style of drawing is not so close to VanGaalen’s at all. Saying that VanGaalen is a “rip-off” because he uses amorphous images, like Patterson does, is like saying Jonas Odell is ripping off Max Ernst, or Patterson is ripping off Robert Crumb or Taiyo Matsumoto with his thick wobbly lines. Its not the same as that god-awful Bloodhoung gang copying the Benni Banassi video. “Copy”; “Similarity”: two different words.

patterson is pretty lame (from an animation-point of view). btw, why is nobody talking about the content of their work? we´re talking only about surface. arrgh, shit the dog on it. cheers.

killakillafornia, how can you say "no respect"? i guess you don't even know what the word respect means. There could be some similarities to patterson work, but saying that to such an amazing and visionary amount of work is bullshit.
