Layzell Bros. are the talent fondu Paul and Matt Layzell. These two unorthodox brothers are responsible for an outlandish series of idents on UK’s E4 channel, including the Titles for the shows Skins and Slacker’s Club. 

Mildly disturbing, chaotic and darkly humorous; the Layzell Bros. playfully rebel against the mores and laws of animation and illustration. They love to work across a wide range of platforms, incorporating illustration, animation, sculpture, t-shirt printing, publishing and live visuals. They have also made a splash in the world of music videos and have developed a continuing collaboration with the band Mazes, including the celebrated promo for Most Days, about a group of skaters getting rowdy in a bubblegum cartoon world. They are currently developing a show for Cartoon Network and have recently created the hilarious short Future Travel for Fox’s new late night animation slot, ADHD (Animation Domination High Def).
