An Infinite Canvas by Any Other NameOctober 28, 2009
Back when Ian created Infinite Canvas, he did so because the technology that he wanted to use simply didn’t exist. It was a combination of not being able to find the right tool to create an infinite-canvas-style comic and the desire to apply Seadragon’s philosophy to an interesting, albeit niche, space.
Artist Donato Sansone came across the same problem when he tried to create an infinite canvasy, flip-animation… thing. His response was to create a flip-book of truly epic (or room-sized) proportions and video himself making the magic happen. I’ve been told that this video contains some disturbing artwork, but the first time I watched it, I hardly noticed over the sound of how awesome it was.
