Prolific French illustrator, animator, musician, and art director McBess created this fantastic music video for his band Dead Pirates’ track ‘Ugo’. The video is animated in the style of 1930s black and white cartoons, an aesthetic that has heavily permeated Mcbess’ career and character design.

If you like the tune, you can listen to their album Highmare on Bandcamp, check out Mcbess’ illustration work, or see some more music videos from Mcbess and his creative partner Simon Landrien at the MCBESSSIMON channel.
