Historians might argue otherwise, but comic fans are pretty unanimous that the video camera was invented solely so that we might behold artists at work on demand. After all, if there's anything more engrossing than a completed comic, it's the labor that brought it to life. Though Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec aren't sequential artists, the two have constructed a twist on your average studio video by filming illustrations with a camera fixed on the perspectives of pens. It's a fun, if dizzying, reminder of just how much a pen, brush, marker or other tool moves around a page (or screen) to render even the most basic figures and shapes. It would be pretty wonderful to see a few comic pros apply this technique to a studio video or two of their own. Check out the video to see if you'd crave comic art captured in a similar manner.
