Dripped - a short animation about a man who just can't get his fill of art.

The worst we've seen is licking.

I think you have to consume the entire piece in order to get the effects.

(I don't recommend the Soutine.)

I love your double entendre title for it, "A taste for art". It made me think about how consuming art transforms the viewer's perception of reality.

A delightfully done film up to when it became only about Pollock. That limitation disappointed me a bit. But really, I wanted the film to go on and on. Enjoying the other ChezEddy stuff too.

God only knows what kinds of gravy and cheese that one tastes like.

Also, whatever you do, don't eat the Bacon.

No matter how badly you want to.

oh louche mustachio, the entire time I was watching this I was thinking "please, no Bacon."

I was also a little disappointed by the Pollock bit at the end. I was expecting the artist would push through,developing his skills in a more satisfying way. I loved the fact that I got wrapped up in it enough to care and expect that much more for the outcome.

Jeez, what is it with the French and their beautiful, loopy animation?

If this post made you hungry for art:
Van Gogh cake
Mondrian cake
The Scream cake

And then there's The Ability to hear paintings.
