I never thought that pop-up books could be so complex. What really blew me away was the amount of time the artist took to make just one book. One of his books took 7 years to make. That's a freaking third of my life!! ....and i though animation took a long time. The artist said that the best way to learn how to make a pop-up book is to buy one and tear it apart.
The other lecture I went to was the last lecture of the year. I really enjoyed listening to this artist and I really liked his work. His concepts were very interesting. His artwork was based on commercialism and stereotypes. So, he focused on stereotypes in commercials. He himself wasn't the ordinary black man and that inspired his work.
