This is the final piece for my AS art course, a flipbook made entirely out of biro pens. It’s something like 2100 pages long, and about 50 jotter books. I’d say I worked on and off it for roughly 3 weeks.

Song is French Cancan by Jaques Offenbach.

    This was Mel Brooks (History of The World), Monty Python, and The Simpsons all scrolled into one, and expanded my morning.
    Thanks.

    BR: It is not at all clear that you were not the author of this piece. Maybe you should have put the text above the clip in quotes? And offered a direct link to the original YouTube posted version?

    The original author seems to be “Displaced Eskimo”:
