Another genius director behind this short is David Shirgley!
6 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

David Shrigley is a great artist who makes twisted lo-fi drawings, sculptures and other bits. They're often amusing but can also be dark and difficult. He lives in Glasgow where he went to art school. Since then he's made a name for himself with books and postcards, and by appearing in 2000's Beck's Futures, among loads of other things.David also made the award-winning MV Blur "Good Song" with Shynola. This September, he just released his book of drawing collections "Book of David Shrigley", containing 150 new drawings, sketchbook entries from student days, sad and funny ephemera, and texts that illuminate his work with a sideways light.

Who I Am and What I want is 2005 animation commissioned by animate!,directed by David Shrigley and Chris Shepherd. It's a scribbled, strangely funny but highly unsettling examination of the human condition. The story of a man who bares his emotions, history, hang ups and desires in all of their dysfunctional absurdity then leaves us to assemble not only his identity but to question our own.
