Beautiful Flip-Books Made From Recycled Bike Parts by Artist Juan Fontanive

These flip-books by artist Juan Fontanive are incredible, I’ve never seen an animation feel this alive before. Fontanive builds the mechanisms by recycling old parts from bicycles and clocks, and hand draws, paints, and screen prints images onto paper.

Watch the videos below, the sounds that the machines make are a beautiful compliment to the movement of the animations. These are maybe my favourite works I’ve ever posted.

    my internet would periodically lag during each video giving a slight slomo effect into freeze frame of one image lol it added greatly to the experience. thanks crappy wifi.

      Same. Helps you appreciate each individual picture (however, not by choice).
