In celebration of our new MeSseD Vol. 1: Follow the Flush trade, MeSseD illustrator Dylan Speeg has mashed his two creative muses together using animation. His band, Heavy Hinges and his comic, MeSseD combined into a new animated short / music video.
Featuring the song, Ms. Right, a track off of Heavy Hinges' 2018 release Lonely, the music video is the result of months of Speeg's solo animation work.
"This took me 5 months to make. I had my model Xu V. Chau dress up like the character Lilliput and took some reference photos for movement then went to work drawing. It took 1,365 drawings to make this 4 minute and 27 second animated short."
"I'm really blown away at all the commitment and creativity that Dylan has shown in the creation of this animated short," says Kalagayan, "One of my favorite introductions into the world of anime was the Matthew Sweet video for Girlfriend. We're hoping to have that kind of effect for our fans and new readers."
"I used a lot of the original art from the comicbooks for the backgrounds, says Speeg, "I drew most of the stuff by hand with ink scanned it into the computer to add shade and animate. I wanted to show what the world Jay and I have been building over the years in the comic book might look like in action."
