You Too Can Be a Cartoonist! A Film Sans Yeux

And this is what happens when I start drawing a simple doodle and the process gets out of hand. Those who prefer greater depth to their two-and-a-half minute movies might like to see this as an all-purpose metaphor -- I particularly like love; politics; atheism; faith; sex; civilzation; the heart of darkness; the ages of man; the strange world of absinthe; bureaucracy; and/or new introductory notes on psychoanalysis. And that's just so far. The only metaphors I tried that didn't quite work were girls gone wild; Cartesian dualism and the particle/wave hypothesis; and gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

The music is by Gianluigi Trovesi.
