Run Wrake (1965-2012)

Without a doubt, one of my favorite animated shorts of all time has got to be "Rabbit" by animator Run Wrake. In this short, we see the pages of a children's storybook come to life as the two children shed their innocent visages and become greedy, knife-wielding brutes. With no dialogue and complex layers of sound, Wrake tells a morality tale like you've never seen. And the labels on everything is so damn cute.
Sadly, Wrake passed away this Sunday at the age of 47. However, he has left behind a legacy of fantastic works in a variety of styles that influenced so many in the animation world. Do yourself a favor and check out some of the late master's works.

Cartoon Brew has more.
