andy huang: “doll face”.

Wow. Wow. Wow.

At only 22, artist and animator Andy Huang‘s work has already been shown at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. Completed in 2005, “Doll Face” is the worthy recipient of several accolades, including being an Official Selection at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France and at the Electronic Theater at Siggraph 2006 in Boston. Watching the short, it’s not hard to see why it’s received so much love…

Besides just the timeless and universal look at narcissism and the quest for beauty, the mix between animation and live action here is flawless. I can’t stop watching it. Andy’s now working for Root Films in LA, where you can check out his most recent work. I might also be partial to “Doll Face” because it’s got a similar vibe to one of my favourite music videos, Björk and Chris Cunningham’s freakishly good lesbo-robotic “All Is Full Of Love”:
