Creative Spotlight: The Fantastic World of Fantástico Morales

There's a certain quality to the surrealistic work of animators such as Bakshi (Fritz the Cat, Wizards), Danny Antonucci (Lupo the Butcher, The Brothers Grunt), or Bill Plympton (Plymptoons, Hair High) that makes the world seem violently elastic and reveals a little more about our true nature than we'd care to admit. And while its hard to channel that kind of seemingly limitless creativity, that's exactly what The Fantastic World of Fantástico Morales manages to do.

Created by Jossie Malis (Bendito Machine) and Ricardo Espinosa, The Fantastic World of Fantástico Morales is an all-too short mindtrip from beginning to end. From the time the hypnosis-inducing colors of the title screen roll to the final credits, Malis and Espinosa manage to craft a series of events and level of Flash-illustrated detail that would make their animator forefathers proud.
