12 drawings a day

Denis Chapon spent 3 years of his life producing 12 drawings a day to produce this great 4 minute stop motion animation. Without planning the drawings, Denis created images which sprung to mind that particular day, with each day producing a second of animation material. Nothing was changed, and the initial drawings were made in permanent ink, therefore not allowing for changes.

I think that some of the transitions are fab, especially the guitar swipe and the octopus, almost losing the point where they change from one to another. Great work!
