An Artist’s Hand Battles His Own Drawing, Street Fighter Style


This animated short by Jonny Lawrence is cool. I know we’ve all seen variations on the “Duck Amuck” theme – which I would argue is itself a riff on the Book of Job – but I’ve never seen one with hands versus hadoukens.

What arguably makes this different from Job and Daffy is that here, I don’t think we sympathize necessarily with the creation, but the creator. Certainly as a writer, I understand the notion of fighting with my creation to get it to do what I want. And by the end of the day if my hand is sore, it could be argued that I took a beating from it.

This is more literal, and funnier than what I just said. And it’s called “Maker vs. Marker,” which makes me think of whiskey.

Mmmm, whiskey.

Watch after the jump.
