Ok, here it is all fixed and 33 seconds in. I’ve moved it from PowerPoint to iMovie, which makes a ton more sense. Please keep in mind that I am using this song without permission, and that it is something I’m working on now.
You know it’s rewarding when you spend six hours doing it and the result is six seconds long. I haven’t done a ‘video’ for ages and as I was driving the other morning, listening to Elbow’s Mirrorball, I started visualizing the song. Of course I have no idea where this will go but I think […]
Yesterday I posted a video to Instagram which I felt needed to be longer, because I am momentarily in love with Andrew Bird’s song Nervous Tic Motion of the Head to the Left. So I am posting the song here, along with a slideshow of more Duplicate and Triplicate drawings.

I’ve found the technique I’m comfortable with and I’ve just started to refine it. I love the serendipitous moments I get with these prints. Any time you have results that you are not totally in control of but which are interesting is a bonus!
