DRIPPED Is a Sweet and Strange Animated Short

Videosby Mily Dunbar

This wonderful short was shortlisted for the Oscar for the Best Animated Short in 2013, and it is probably the sweetest homage to a great painter I have ever seen. Written and directed by Léo Verrier, "Dripped" is about an art thief with a curious motive. He doesn’t sell the paintings he steals — he eats them and becomes them. Briefly. Unfortunately, the museum beefs up security, his supply dries up, and… I’m not going to tell you what happens. But the whole thing is a really beautiful tribute to Jackson Pollock, and it is definitely worth a watch. It is sure to put a smile on your face.

Thanks to io9 for the heads up.
