Great post!

I think Han Hoogerbrugge has foud a new fan in yours truly, of not only his flash sketches, but his name too.

(Plus he's got a cool car and he likes vacations.)

Thanks, zerofoks.

When I first checked out Nails it left me kind of flat. It seemed like a not that funny one trick pony. But viewing the rest of the animations as a whole, I can appreciate he is doing subtle variations on a theme. And that many of them are entertaining little worlds all on their own. As a Flash animator I'm impressed with how much content he packs into the swfs for their relatively small file size.

Well, Moogerfooger! I'd never heard of Mr. Hoogerbrugge. Good stuff. Reminds me of Terry Gilliam's animation, in a way.

Well, whattaya know? I searched for "Modern Living" in old threads and came up with a really cool, pretty big video-music clip by the man himself!

About the first link I posted: That was an episode of the Clown Basics, a very early project by Mr Hoogerbrugge. All in all, 50 Clown Basics exist, and as soon as they are online again somewhere, I am posting them here. Or in another thread. :-)

I love Modern Living. I usually refrain from comments that merely show emotional assent without adding something to the discussion, but I'll make this exception for Hooger. He deserves it.

zerofoks, I look forward to them.
