Then it might bear a strong resemblance to this concept animation by Malcolm Sutherland. Sutherland took cues from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comic book, which experimented with many bizarre art styles. Here's a pared-down look at those familiar sewer shinobi of New York City. And is Michelangelo smoking the reefer?

Explains Sutherland of his inspiration, "In particular, when I read #37 and #42 by Rick McCollum and Bill Anderson it totally changed my life. No kidding! Those books are so beautiful, and are so intense and full of magic that they left a deep mark on me."
