Image from The Seed

London based animator and illustrator, Johnny Kelly, has an impressive body of work. This particular image, from his short animation The Seed, depicts the journey of an apple seed through its natural cycle of life. The Seed features stop motion and 2D animation, with faceted paper cut forms, vibrant colors, and a lot of attention to detail.

In addition to creating awe-inspiring animation, Johnny also has delightful illustrations made of cut paper. Check out more of his work at his website and on Vimeo.

Hey Grace,
Thanks for posting this. I’ve been a fan of Kelly’s work since I saw The Seed. I’m glad to see that he has more animations on Vimeo.

Hey Megan! Yes, his work is pretty amazing. I really like his intro for the Klokhuis TV show.

Johnny is a unique talent and I look forward to seeing more of his work. Great use of colors.

what a gorgeous digestive system!
