DAVID OREILLY ~ My Favorite Taco

2:14 PM PST on December 17, 2013


David OReilly is an Irish animator, writer, and director based in Los Angeles who is well known for his 3D short films, the "A Glitch is a Glitch" episode on Adventure Time, and his bizarre twitter persona. Recently David launched an avant garde fashion line featuring intensive use of the Comic Sans font. According to Austrian critic Alejandro Bachmann, "At first glance, OReilly's films appear to be technically botched high-speed morality paintings of the 21st century. But his shortest, graphically demanding works (or his animations in Garth Jennings' Son of Rambow) are proof that everything is intentional here. There is a clarity and purity, a reduction to the "bare essentials", which enable OReilly's oeuvre to gain its characteristic compactness in all matters narrative and emotional: in this crazily condensed cosmos, the new is constantly discovered anew."
