Styles of Animation #6: Sand Drawing

Kseniya Simonova’s from The Ukraine. And here she is on Ukaraine’s Talent Show. Here in our bowl, we rate her higher than that Boyle woman, but what do we know? We know we like drawing and we’ve never seen it done this way. Both the image and the artist dances throughout. The text tells us that is a story of when Germany invaded the Ukaraine in WW2, but even without knowing that we were fascinated. If it is live, is it still animation?

Art Doodle Drive Away

More Rinpa Eshidan noodling. What can I say? We’d give these drawers extra noses to come sit in the bowl.

Rinpa Eshidan Bird’s Eye View

Okay, we admit: we’ve been BOWLED over by this Japanese doodling crew.  Here they are watched from above.  They give new meaning to “action painting”.

Wall Doodling Puzzle

About two weeks ago we stumbled upon Rinpaeshidan, a drawing team in Japan. We can’t get enough of them. There is something kind of magical on their willingness to draw on top of each other.

This is a good idea they had: to make a four panel drawing that they can switch around the panels like a puzzle. Check out their website too for more good stuff. I think we will be seeing a lot from this crew.

These People Can Draw Draw Draw!

This is a week of wall doodling from Japan.  Black on white, then white on black, then white on that, and so on, and so forth, until….  well, check it out.  It makes me want to get some really big paper!

Thanks to Doodlage for the tip!

The Art Of Clean

Moose does “reverse” graffiti. He cleans away the dirt and grime to leave cool images on the newly clean surfaces. Not only does he make the world a better place to look at it, but he helps us realize how dirty the world really is (tip BoingBoing). For more info, check it out here.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
