When reality spins in endless movement why should cartoons keep still?
Spam Cartoon is a new breed of graphic humour: very short animations that laugh about issues, politics, stars, grudges, atmospheres, catastrophes and, who knows, ex-girlfriends.
Created by André Carrilho and João Paulo Cotrim with Cristina Sampaio (drawings), João Fazenda (drawings) and José Condeixa (sound).
André Carrilho (Amadora, 1974) is an illustrator, graphic designer, animator and caricaturist, working with some of the most important Portuguese and international publications (The New York Times, Word, Vanity Fair, The Independent on Sunday, NZZ am Sonntag and Diário de Notícias).
