The key to it all

Alex Itin made this gorgeous video as a birthday present to himself. He used two copies of Moby Dick so that he could paint/draw on both sides of each page for months. He then used some sound found on YouTube of Orson Welles reading from Moby Dick for a failed Italian T.V. film, some Led Zeppelin, some drummers performing Bonzo and the end result is an amazing piece of art that we can all enjoy. It's just wonderful.
