Do you still have a copy of it? I would love to get my hands on some of his work.

no, but in my figure classes in college we had entire 3-6 hour classes where you could only one paper to do several drawings. we were instructed to just erase and draw over, over and over again. it is a very good lesson. you don't hold your work in such high esteem. it is just about process.

in my post modern/comtemporary art class we had a text dvd that contained all of kentridges work.

Yes, particularly the shots where he illustrates human corpses transforming into landscapes. It is beautiful the way he gently blurs figurative forms into something much larger. I tried to do a charcoal kentridge-inspired piece one time (drawing each frame over the previous one on the same piece of paper like he does), but unbelievably the miniDV camera I was using only captured the first and last frames. So much work and I was only left with a single drawing. In my opinion, that is ONE brutal syle/technique to practice in regards to the 'risk' factors involved. You ever tried it?

Well shits, thanks a lot for your encouraging words Jared. I am always skeptical about my work because it can sometimes be pretty far out there. I really enjoyed using spraypaint in this way and can't wait to try it again (it was my first attempt at the method). I feel that I get a lot of inspiration and influence from William Kentridge, a South African artist who does amazing work with charcoal animation. You should check his work out if the name is unfamiliar.

Absolutely Brillant!!

I have never seen someone do that with spray paint before. One of the most original videos on medicinefilms. Keep up the good work. I will recomend this movie to others. More the method and medium that gets me more then anything. Thank you for shareing this mind blowing work.

This is a video depiction of a hypnotic state that I have put a very close friend of mine into using only my voice. The images shown are mostly visual descriptions of what she saw and felt while in the dream-like state. I used miniDV, charcoal, colored pastels, and spraypaint to create the short animated video.
