Watch Simon Stålenhag’s art come to life in this fantastic fan-animated film
Simon Stålenhag has earned a considerable following for his fantastic retro-futuristic artwork in recent years, One fan has taken it upon themselves to animate his world in a brief fan film, bringing it to life in an eerie short video.
The video comes from an artist named Ilya Plotnikov, which puts some motion to the art from Stålenhag’s narrative art book The Electric State, which he Kickstarted in 2017, and set to music that Stålenhag composed and released online. The film doesn’t exactly convey the entire story, but it does perfectly capture the vibe of the world in the book.
The story is set in an alternate 1990s, following a runaway teenager and her toy robot as they embark on a road trip across a post-apocalyptic United States….
