Stéphane Halleux

Neatorama points this out and we agree: Halleux's stuff is fairly badass. And looking around, we would concur also with Lines and Colors and Juxtapoz: it really is a lot like Tim Burton, Henry Selick and Sylvain Chomet all tried to get together and create some stop motion puppets. I mean, seriously, these things are just crying out to be used in animation, don't you think?
