What’s Popped Up: Brooke’s Broken Heart

Happy Valentine’s Day!  One of my favorite fine artists that work with pop-ups is Colette Fu.  She is known for her large scale pop-ups that deal with various themes like Chinese ethnic groups, food and consumerism and haunted locations.  In fact, she currently has an exhibition of her recent series “Haunted Philly” at The Athenaeum of Philadelphia until March 18th.

Last year, Colette travelled to California to collaborate with Duck Studios to create a series of charming pop-up inspired commercials for the Children’s Medical Center in Texas.  On February 5th the International Animated Film Society held the 38th Annual Annie Awards for excellence in animation. It was announced that “Brooke’s Broken Heart” won for best animated TV commercial.  Enjoy this heartwarming video today.
