I like flat-perspective, simple, decorated line art like this. I experimented with similar things back in the nineties, and I'll return to it.
You could say it's the opposite to the trend with more and more 3-dimensional art going on in recent years.
Much of the art of The Secret Of Kells is strongly reminiscent of Samurai Jack, they must share designers.
This film is amazing, I don't think I have ever seen so many outstanding compositions in one film. It's an art feast.
Here's an oddity: the pics I take of the TV with the Panasonic GF1 have interference patterns:
But those I take with a tiny Canon Ixus 860, don't:
The GF1 has a bigger sensor and a better lens, so this surprises me, I have no clue what makes for the difference. Shutter speed does not seem to be it.
... if you shot both pictures with very similar framing the most likely reason simply is the different pixel count of the cameras (about 22% linear). Try framing the shot 20% tighter with the Ixus and you might get moiré as well. The GF1 on the other hand definitely shouldn't show moiré from 20% further away. For moiré to occur the grids of subject and sensor have to match; due to the different pixel pitch of both cameras you'll see moiré for different subject grid frequencies.
You are right. Watch these down-scaled but un-cropped photos with the GF1 at two distances:
