It hasn’t been long since we last mentioned fantastic stop-motion animator Pes, but his latest offering takes his already quirky-yet-smooth style and adds considerably more awesome.

The liquid effects here are absolutely wonderful, as are the various chopping and squashing parts. Animation is all about problem solving, and stop-motion doubly so. I spent the first two weeks of this month teaching stop-motion to over 100 9-16 year olds, and it was fascinating to watch them trying to figure out how to get what was in their heads on to the screen. Watching Pes’ work, there’s plenty of “how would I do that?” moments.
