Animator und Illustrator Han Hoogerbrugge ist eine Legende im Web und einer meiner Lieblingsanimatoren, seine völlig weirden und abartigen Animationen sind weltbekannt und wer von ihm noch nichts gehört hat, sollte sich schleunigst auf seiner Website totklicken, alles von ihm ist von sehr gut bis völlig brillant. Unbedingte Pflicht sind Modern Living und Flow. Und genau dieser Hoogerbrugge hat jetzt endlich, nach zwölf Jahren Web-Animation, ein eigenes Buch am Start.

We're proud to present a coffee table book/DVD about the unparalleled work of one of the most original artists-slash-animators currently active on the web: Han Hoogerbrugge. The 200-page book covers all aspects of Hoogerbrugge's work and career: from the early beginnings of the Neurotica web series, up to Hotel, Nails and his commissioned works, such as illustrations, music videos and idents. Hoogerbrugge finally reveals how he makes his animations - comic strip style - in the chapter "How does he do it?"

Most chapters contain an introduction by SubmarineChannel to which Hoogerbrugge added his invaluable side notes and comments. Scattered throughout the book you will find snippets from the many comments Hoogerbrugge received from site visitors throughout the years, some of which are really funny. Additionally, we asked four geniuses to give their expert interpretation of Hoogerbrugge's intricate, personal universe. They are: author Marcel Möring, digital film pioneer Matt Hanson, art critic Vivianne Loría and animation expert Helen Walters.
