Toshitaka Youno

First Featured Sundays contest on Animataurus has it’s winner. It’s Toshitaka Youno, a Japanese musician, singer and songwriter, who’d recently decided to create animations for his music videos. The videos are amazingly engaging, and they remind me of Monty Python’s animations (and you couldn’t get a much bigger compliment from me). The fact that all the work put into this was done by one person is extraordinary. Congratulations!
