Federico Tobon Uses a Power-Drill to Bring Hand-Drawn Illustrations to Life

Los Angeles-based artist Federico Tobon used a very unconventional technique to animate his latest flipbook. Tobon inventively utilized a power drill to animate 24 hand-drawn pages of artwork. The pages were attached to the chuck of a drill and once the tool was turned on, the still frames began moving. The result is nothing short of fascinating. Check it out above.
