Welcome to Julian Glander's Weird World

"Purple Face"

"Purple Face"

Pittsburgh-based animator/illustrator Julian Glander creates delightful and quirky things that make me want to know the human behind the weirdness. Take for instance Roy G. Biv, his synesthesia synthesizer iPhone app that translates colors into sounds.

Glander makes some pretty kooky visual artwork, too, featuring bulbous 3D creatures in pinks, purples, and other candy-colored pastels. His work reminds me of a weird alterna-Gumby crossed with the bizarro lo-fi stylings of Paper Rad (albeit, more muted in color and less psychedelic).
