It’s Back: Yule Log 2.0(14)!


Gather round world wide web! Daniel Savage, Oddfellows and Wondersauce have banded together to present the blazing work of over 80 artists. Inspired by the iconic WPIX-11 Yule Log, Yule Log 2.0 invites  illustrators, animators, directors, and creative coders to reinterpret the hearth in whatever way they see fit. Now in its second year, I think we can safely call this collaborative project a holiday tradition.

There are several public screenings planned around New York, including the lobby of Viacom and an event at Big Screen Plaza — or you can watch ’em all from the warmth of your browser.

Some really great, simple work, but I can’t tell who did what! Each piece should clearly state the name of the artist(s) that worked on it, no?

Daniel Savage

Thanks Erica! @umotigre – below every single film has the artist’s name, site, and twitter account.

I really love this. Refreshing explorations on the traditional Yule log with no trace of committee decision making or over thinking . . . just pure expressive design. Bravo, and thanks for sharing!


Really awesome work!! When will the showing at Big Screen Plaza be held?
