EDLUNDART: What an amazing picture. It’s both a slice-of-life street scene and a realistic portrait of an impossibility.

SU is never going to be a show that adheres to static, lifeless stock expressions. it’s a CARTOON and we do not apologize.
EDLUNDART: Right on! I admire that approach, even if my own projects have tended toward more strict, pre-drawn/stock expressions. It’s always a challenge as a lone animator to create enough variety to keep the attention of the audience, while still managing to move forward on your project and produce enough seconds per day to ever reach the goal-line… these variations are really well executed as they don’t feel slavish at all, but still they’re not SO crazy that you don’t recognize the character from one moment to the next.

EDLUNDART: I love the way the concrete doesn’t parallel the angle of the stairs, but instead meets them at the ground level. Geometrically really interesting — heavy, yet dynamic.
This new EP is the result of a challenge issued to myself — could I make something worthwhile using cheap drum machine sounds for percussion? What about some synth bass samples? I got into a Casio mood and wrote melodies that often echo the cheesiness of the sounds used, yet attempt to stumble upon a dynamic surprise here and there. It was fun making these soundscapes into my cup of tea, by adding in guitars, more natural drum samples, and various other instruments.

The first redesign of edlundart.com since 2010 has launched! If it’s not better than your site, it’s most likely bigger! I aimed for stupidly simple, stupidly huge, and made it mobile friendly in the least responsive (ie complex) way imaginable. Enjoy!
