Molly Crabapple is awesome. Timelapse film of artists at work are awesome. Therefore, this is awesome, and I need some new adjectives.

I have the artistic talent of a rubber stamp but in the Molly C video I find it fascinating how she alternates between blocking out new territory of the hair and refining the details on the face where she started, and I find that this closely parallels the way I shift tasks as I'm working on a project even though I'm writing software instead of drawing a picture. It could only be closer if it showed her leaving the sketchboard and surfing the internet occasionally too.

No one should be allowed to be simultaneously this talented and intelligent and attractive. She must be destroyed.

Very cool, but I kind of wish they had a timelapse counter so we can see how long it took the artist to actually complete the sketch -- was that ten minutes, or an hour?
