Animation: Chris Ware’s Quimby the Mouse

Quimby The Mouse from This American Life on Vimeo.

Here’s a brilliant animation designed by comic artist Chris Ware. The music is by Andrew Bird and the animation is by John Kuramoto. The little tale of a terribly abusive relationship between a mouse and a head is disturbingly hilarious. I love the way everything moves with such clean precision to the the music. Truly creepy and charming at the same time. How’d they do that?
