3-27-09 Cyriak – Robogran

Posted by Sean on March 27, 2009

Okay, but when is Meow Meow gonna start singing “Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome”?

Going from sex kittens to what the porn industry likes to call “mature women”… A theme that runs throughout much of British animator Cyriak Harris’ oufre (literally, his Denver omelet) is one that I believe resonates with almost everyone, no matter their race, nationality or creed, a timeless symbol that springs from the deepest roots of the human experience: monster grannies. I don’t know why. Possibly it’s the fallout of a suppressed childhood memory involving his beloved Grandma Elsie, a vat of radioactive waste and a lot of running and screaming. It’s just there. Monty Python has their crossdressing, Cyriak has his hideously mutated nanas.

An excellent example of this is Robogran, probably my favorite Cyriak short . Believe it or not, Robogran really isn’t representative of his other videos on YouTube. They aren’t quite as… coherent as this.

Courtesy, not surprisingly, of cyriak.
