Last year, Freddy Arenas (opens in new tab) created a beautiful animation highlighting age gaps in relationships (opens in new tab); now he's gone and done it again with this brilliant animated interview with Sonic Youth member and iconic musician Kim Gordon. Created for the people at California Sunday Magazine (opens in new tab), the animation showcases Gordon's love of California.
"I joked that I would be on board if they got me Spike Jonze; after a month or so they contacted me telling me that they had an interview with Kim Gordon and they were planning on releasing that one next," he explains. "I was super-excited, I'm a skateboarder, I grew up listening to Sonic Youth everyday.
"The process was rather quick and I didn't have time to evolve the ideas as much as I would've liked to, so I focus on the illustrations, just having fun with the characters, the animation and the transitions."
