      Andrew Kolb's "Space Book" animated to Bowie's classic song. Animated by Andrew Ruttan Thanks to Sam Seitz for his assist Very special thanks to Andrew Kolb for drawing these delightful illustrations. I took them from his website, and hope he doesn't mind me spicing it up. A very talented artist! Check out more of his amazing work at www.kolbisneat.com Also thanks to David Bowie for his fantastic musical career. 35+ years of inspiring people all over the world. if you don't own this song yet, check out: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/space-oddity/id14684158 I do not own the rights/ have permission to use this copywritten song. I also have no legal right to use Kolb's artwork, and he did not help me in any way besides drawing these for his personal use. I took his art and digitally cut it apart from the PDF on his website. That being said, This is a non-profit project After seeing Kolb's "Space Book" on his site a month or so ago, I emailed him and asked if I could animate his art. I had just finished up a free-lance position, and didn't want my skills to get dull; being a Bowie fan all my life, his art really excited me. So here you have it; My contribution to the Major Tom Phenomena. Thanks again to Andrew Kolb for the art. Programs Used: After Effects CS4, PhotoShop CS4, FCP7

        Today on Boing Boing I saw Andrew Kolb's illustrated children's book based on David Bowie's Space Oddity. What a great idea! You can find it here: http://www.kolbisneat.com/ Andrew's style of art reminds me of my favorite animator from my childhood, David McKee. McKee made children's programmes for the BBC such as Mr Benn, King Rollo & Spot The Dog. As a tiny passion project and a challenge to myself, I decided to animate his illustrations to the song in under 5 hours - in the style of animation that I used to watch as a child. It's not perfect, but then I completed the video from start to finish in 4 hours 30 minutes. Good luck to Andrew and I really hope he gets his work published as a children's book. Copyright Disclaimer: This video was made & uploaded online as a way of creating awareness & commentary of Andrew Kolb's children's book concept as well as David Bowie's seminal song. However, as discussed in the New Yorker about this very video - it could be argued that the act of posting the video is an infringement of copyright law. From my point of view - I've posted this video on Vimeo with the intention of providing commentary and criticism for the public interest within the "fair use" loophole of copyright law. Neither I, nor Andrew Kolb have made any intention to profit from this idea and therefore this video should be allowed to be viewed by the general public within those parameters. Your opinions & comments on this are greatly encouraged.
