Barcelona Sketchbook Video

I had the idea of making a simple "fade on-fade off" type slideshow using the sketches from the previous post. When I started adding text, inspiration took over and things got out of hand! Finally, when I got the video more or less finished, I needed to get some music down, giving me a great excuse to dust off the guitar and drum machine. I think the final result reflects the inspiration I recieve from the surrounding architecture and the everyday hussle and bussle of the city centre, far better than I could with a simple slideshow. The clip is dedicated to my daughter, a non-stop source of inspiration and laughter.

Pretty awe-inspiring Dave, I must say. I think you've created a fantastic piece of art there. Truly shows off your many talents.
You've set an un-realistic precedent that the rest of us will struggle to follow.

Excellent work!

Thanks for the kind words and support everyone!
Hopefully I'll get to put another one together soon (whenever I finally get around to scanning the latest bunch of sketches).
