Chris Appelhans has done some awesome production and character design for films like Monster House, City of Ember, and Coraline. He exhibits a fabulous range, from the ultra-dark and disgustingly well-rendered to the innocent and simple–and oftentimes the two realms overlap. How his work always seems to retain a sense of hope is beyond me!
Check out his Frank and Frank cartoons as well as his modern-day adaptation of Alice in Wonderland (pictures after the jump, of course!).
These Frank and Frank cartoons are so simple and charming! Compiled into an oddly long book, each begins with a one-word title and absolutely no dialogue. They’re loads of fun to look through!
