Cyriak!

One of my favourite (with the British spelling) animators on YouTube is Cyriak Harris, whose bizarre, cycling creations are truly works of mad genius.  He uses the same tools I profess to know, namely Adobe Photoshop and After Effects, and his mastery of both tools leaves me pulling my hair as I try to figure out how he does what he does.

Here is a link to a sort-of-long but oddly inspirational interview with Cyriak.


The following are some of my favourite examples of his work.



"Cycles"



"cows & cows & cows"

  1. Oh my goodness. Mind blown. Just watched all of these with my kids. They laughed the entire way through cows & cows & cows.

    1. Dem cows... That works in so many ways. Here is another of his, which might actually be my very favorite. It's a collection of small gags, all of which are brilliant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3JCESdFNyw
