An original tragic-love-story for Elvis Costello's ballad Suspect My Tears – drenched in rain, ink and romance - by the animator Mustashrik.

A homage to film noir, it's a dark tale that traverses the emotions of jealousy and envy and devotion, and has the appropriate drama to match Costello's new ballad - which harks back to his early Noughties collaborations with Burt Bacharach.

It's was also created with a mix of 2D traditional animation, motion graphics and a unique code based animation tool, to combine a styule somewhere between animation and powerful illustration.
