Rock'n Monsters

What would happen when real-life monster-inc creations would upload their covers videos onto youtube? The results could be compared to the six animations made by Ghent-based motion designer and Illustrator Kristof Luyckx. Kristof made these for the graphic festival Beyonderground where the animations announced the start of a lecture. As the festival focused on the relation between visuals and music, the animated musical interludes were a sublime match!

These creatures are a perfect translation of Kristofs inspirations such as weird people, boring stuff, small talk and facial hair! And this immediately explains the dry sense of humor added to these animations. Whether you have a long-necked red and black demonic bird which smashes its head to create the tones for 'Enjoy The Silence’ by Depeche Mode or a devilish Pino-the-bird like siamese twin rocking Guns N’ Roses' Paradise City, it will be hard to suppress a smile!

The I Love Belgium team just wonders how one of these creatures would sound and behave when covering Beyonce's Single Ladies.... Who knows, maybe this inspires Kristof for a bigger, broader series of rock'n monsters and a true youtube hit could take place.
