His name is Tortov Roddle, and he is a traveler from Tortalia. Along with his unusually large companion of a pig, the slender Tortov travels from place to place, always finding a new and beautiful adventure at his destination. From islands carried on the backs of frogs, to delightful cafes, to movie theaters and giant bears, there's a wonderful story to tell in the diary of Tortov Roddle.

When I first picked up Diary of Tortov Roddle, I had no idea what it was about. Studio 4C is my favorite studio and the group JollyRoger has put out many of their works and shorts. Thus, when they released this newfound gem, I knew I had to watch it. Luckily, it was just as good as I had hoped it would be.

This is a collection of very short vignettes with fantastical imagery in a fantastical world with mute and mostly static characters/environments. Personally, I got very little out of this because I'm not a fan of the aesthetic style/philosophy of solely depending on surrealism and man-made concepts as intrinsically meaningful things, and there's not much else going for this work. read more
