DONKS is a short animation by artist Felix Colgrave

DONKS, by artist Felix Colgrave, features creatures and objects existing somewhere between the abstract and the figurative. I love how Colgrave relies heavily on sound to give each character and scene a distinct personality. I also love how the creatures and objects in this film are composed of hodgepodge shapes and objects that one wouldn't expect to see combined together. I could sit here and watch an entire feature length film of the DONKS universe.

"An exploration of ocean plastic, avatars and adaptive bottom feeders. The musical!

Also an experiment in pre-rendered graphics.

The name comes from a box of miscellaneous plastic objects my child has. Things that are not categorically blocks or figurines or anything describable. I referred to them as "gonks", which was pronounced by my then-2-year-old as "donks". This film was me making my own set of donks, and building silly things out of them.

Made by myself over 16 months, at WOMBOT @wombotstudio  (a new studio, which is me and my wife, in our garage)
