Joel Plosz Builds “A Model Dog” for The Verge
The eccentric geometric style of New York illustrator/animator Joel Plosz elevates a story by John Scalzi into a mini-classic short film and the latest addition to The Verge’s ongoing Better Worlds science fiction project.
You may recognize Plosz’s singular style from this standout effort he created for VICE News in 2018 called Privatizing Space.
