I’ve been reading Born to be Posthumous: The Eccentric Life and Mysterious Genius of Edward Gorey and somehow stumbled across a series of animations of interviews with the artist by Benjamin and Jim Wickey that are part of a forthcoming documentary directed by Christopher Seufert. If you’re unfamiliar with Edward Gorey [1925-2000], you might check out his Wikipedia page for an overview or visit his official website. Drawn in Gorey’s trademark style, these shorts are odd, quirky, and fun—which would seem to perfectly mirror the subject. I have no idea when the doc is scheduled for release, but I hope it’s soon.

In the meantime, after you watch this first installment, you can visit YouTube to catch the rest.
