Taylor’s Bi-Weekly #5


Going with video art, here’s a video series called “Don’t Hug me I’m Scared”. It was initially created by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling in 2011, and they have been releasing new episodes since then; at the moment, there are five online. Each episode consists of a different theme, using puppets and song to convey it.

Here’s their first episode and the rest are on their channel, if you want to see the rest:
