French Beasts of Burden Trailer

For the french edition of Beasts of Burden: Animal Rites, publisher Delcourt has made a trailer that partially animates some of Jill Thompson's watercolor art from the series. I'm usually not a big fan of the animated comic book trailer thing, but I have to admit I was kind of knocked out to see this, and not just because it's something I worked on. It looks pretty swell, someone really spent time on this and Jill's art looks great, of course. It's like an animatic for an animated film, with music and titles, it's very professional and it honestly freaked me out when I first saw it because I figured it was going to be a french person thumbing through a printed copy of the book. Which it isn't.

Pretty crazy.
