Animated drawing

William Kentridge is a South African artist best known for his animated films. These are constructed by filming a single drawing, making erasures and changes, and filming it again. The drawings are later displayed along with the film as finished pieces of art.

I like how this process makes the drawing come alive and unique.

also from PBS the series.. ART 21 ssn: 5 Compassion, see the artist at work in his studio.

Something else ... check out these playful limited edition espresso cups he designed for Illy, the silver mirrored cups reflect on the saucers creating an anamorphic effect.
