Richard Swarbrick was an unknown to me, until a friend of mine send his website (shoutout to Koen!). After seeing his animations, I was blown away and immediately penciled his name down for a feature.
His animations combined with live action of football and basketball are not only beautiful looking, but breathe artistry at its max. His football animations ‘Bale’ and ‘El Clasico’ have had huge viral impact internationally clocking up over a million views on YouTube alone. But as a basketball fan I can't stop watching his NBA finals animation. And I think you neither.
Enjoy four animations here, and all of his work here:
