A Brief History of Everything in Flipbook Form

(YouTube Link)

Art student Jamie Bell created this impressive flipbook animation depicting the history of the universe from the Big Bang to the present:

This is the final piece for my AS art course, a flipbook made entirely out of biro pens. It's something like 2100 pages long, and about 50 jotter books. I'd say I worked on and off it for roughly 3 weeks.

The use of the Can-Can as the theme music makes it extra cute.

I am newbie here, but I want to put my opinion here...
Do you know what to advise to my friend - to disaccustom to bottles?

Sports or easier walks in the forest, at open air?

Not exactly the history of the entire universe.

And not to pick nits, Deanie, but the actual name of the music is Orpheus in the Underworld, not the Underground. We recognize it as can-can music, and what's wrong with that?

Picking some more, it was made WITH biro pens, not OUT OF biro pens.

Cute, but it seems a massive waste of paper for the end result, especially since he transferred it to a digital media in the end, anyways.

good animation, poor materials, somewhat anthropocentric with rather western leaning choices for highlights.

i also hate the widespread mindless acceptance of the big bang theory, but that's kind of a different issue.
