Artist Spotlight: Joan Cornella

I just realized I only posted 1 thing in 2012.

2013 will be different.

I haven't been affected by an artist like I am of Joan in a long time. Amazing fucking work that will speak for itself.

It helps me understand how our minds operate with sequence and the sadness and humor that can be manipulated with each cut. ( I'm assuming  his understanding of the cut comes from being a comic artist  since comics are quite cinematic.)

This work reminds me of this video:
