What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Flipping My Lid



Animator Andy Bailey, A.K.A. Andymation, makes and shares really interesting videos of his work. Whether it’s flipbooks, stop-motion, or some combination of the two, his videos are highly entertaining. And I find Bailey’s ‘making of’ videos like the first one below especially fascinating. He not only talks about the drawing and the mechanics of creating the flipbook, he also talks through story and how to communicate emotion. What a generous thing to share!

Bailey truly encourages his viewers, even those without artistic skills, to try and make their own flipbooks. Knowing you lovelies as I do, I strongly suspect at least a couple of my readers will give this a try. If you do, please-oh-please share your results with us!

You can see all of the wonderful Andymation flipbook animations on YouTube and on Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook.

  1. The end of Jonathan Safron Foer’s book “Incredibly Loud and Extremely Close” is a flip story. It is quite intriguing.

  3. The little light table with the pegs to keep the placement uniform is such a simple but genius idea. I am sure it is a lot of fun to work on a flip book, including coming up with the story concept. This post reminded me about the way one of my older brothers used to turn the corners of his school textbooks into flip books.

  4. First, I just threw out my ‘ light table’, which was the X-ray view box from my old dentist ( thank you, Dr. Mooseman!). Now I wish I had it back!! Second, and more important, the story of the flip book the husband made for his wife for their 10 year anniversary was just so touching! This artist is a great storyteller.
