Laura Faggioni is a director, production designer and artist who has worked extensively with Michel Gondry since he asked her to make props for his films (including the horse in Science of Sleep!). I love her stop motion style, as seen below in the award-winning video for A Ribbon, which she directed, and the trailer for Science of Sleep. I also think her stuffed felt birds and sea creatures are the optimum mix of creepy and adorable.
