The hard work quickly paid off he’s now one of only a dozen people designated as a master penman—not to mention the youngest by three decades. This new video from…

Christopher Jobson

Boston-based animator Jake Fried just released his latest psychedelic animation, The Deep End, which was drawn entirely with ink, coffee, and white-out.
