Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No

It’s the 70′s, and pitcher Dock Ellis is high as a kite and pitching the game of his life.

It’s the 1970′s and Major League Baseball is far from the drug-scrutinized organization it is today. Pitcher, Dock Ellis, tells a hilarious, meandering story where he takes LSD and winds up pitching one of the greatest games in the sport’s history. The animation is graphic and simple—like a graphic novel set to spoken words. This is definitely worth 5 minutes of your time.

Andrew makes no attempt to hide his love for the magic art of animation. He appreciates compelling visuals but never forgets that in this modern age, a strong story always reigns supreme. You can see his work at andrewsallen.com or his latest film The Thomas Beale Cipher.
