Made entirely by hand and animated without digital effects, the music video for "Greyhound Blues" explores themes of traveling and childhood while drawing from the visual mythology of 1950s roadside America. Techniques include pen-and-ink and watercolor, paint-on-glass direct animation, abstract experimental animation, and stop-motion featuring hundreds of cut-outs from vintage magazines, encyclopedias, and repair manuals.
