Last Cigarette

The next artist we’d like you to get familiar with is Robert Slawinski. He has studied electrical engineering in his native Poland and  computer graphics and 3D animation at Pratt Institute in New York. He has always been fascinated by classic cartoons, especially Tex Avery’s classics and Tom & Jerry series. Some of those classic animated tales inspired a story of a spider who tries to quit smoking, which materialized as Robert‘s thesis project, 4-minute 3D short “The Last Cigarette”. The film (which he he wrote, directed and animated himself) was subsequently shown at few international animation festivals, including Ars Electronica in Linz; it also won 1st prize in animation as well as the Audience Award at the New York Independent Film & Animation Festival.
In case you asked, he has never smoked in his life.
