Ryan Woodward’s “Thought of You”

No matter how far and how superlatively the folks at Pixar push the computerization envelope, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get over my obsession with hand-drawn animation. I can’t quite quantify/describe the difference, but I sure can “feel” it.

Ryan Woodward’s “Thought of You” is the latest example over which I have been obsessing. There’s something incredibly fluid about it. (And yes, I suppose there’s no reason we won’t be doing this with computers some day in the not-too-distant future. But don’t begrudge me my starry-eyed enthusiasm  in the meantime):

Head on over to Woodward’s Conte Animated website for a “Behind the Scenes” video, as well.
