Amidst a slew of computer-animated films whose artistic direction seems to adhere to an increasingly similar look and feel, there’s something extraordinarily unique about the work of Brian E Baity. Despite being entirely digital Baity’s work harkens back, at least in my mind, to the era of claymation where the handprint of an artist (both literally and figuratively) was more apparent. In fact, it reminds me a lot of early pioneers like Will Vinton (The Adventures of Mark Twain, The PJs) and, to some extent, Peter Fluck and Roger Law (Spitting Image)—a slightly satirical and distinctive caricature of popular culture both past and present. You can scope out a few samples of Baity’s work below, but be sure to check out his online shop as well for even more (plus prints!).
