marcelina jarnuszkiewicz

I don’t often write about animated films, but when Warsaw based artist/illustrator Marcelina Jarnuszkiewicz sent me a link to Półczłowiek Półkoń / Halfman Halfhorse, I had no choice! It’s so lovely… and really weird. The illustrations are gorgeous, the story is wonderfully bizarre, and the music is perfect {I’d even venture to say that it’s a bit Wes Anderson-ish}. Essentially it’s a day-in-the-life of a horse/man… unfortunately he faces a very traumatic moment and turns to cigarettes and alcohol to steady his nerves. Hilarious, totally weird, and really really beautiful:

Oh dear… poor horse/man. Those were a few of my favorite stills, but here is the full animation in all it’s bizarre glory. Please watch… it’s so good!

    Well, that’s TOTALLY unrealistic – it’s prohibited to drink alcohol outside in Warsaw. The city guards would have made him pay fine.

    Have you ever seen work of another Warsaw born (currently living in London) artist – Marta Dlugolecka? I’m a fan 🙂

    Really beautiful and odd, it made me feel kind of nostalgic as if I have had that experience once…..
    Thanks again and again and again, you do an amazing Job!
