Telestrations (Video illustrations)

This section features a selection of illustrations produced on video sketch pads from the early nineties.

I call them « telestrations » as they was once sold under that name.

Beside the electronic hacking part, the most interesting part of it would be the challenge of using it.These are terrible to draw with.Unless you’re like to draw free hand in a more « straight-ahead » drawing mood, you’ll be frustrated by the randomness of the pencil and the disturbing lag that can quickly get over your patience.

I must admit that I was hooked by the « OG pixel » look and the thrill of electronic/video drawing.I sometimes draw and record my work the old way, on VHS and do my capture afterwards.


Some pieces have some glitchy versions that have been done in realtime once I completed the drawing.These glitchy ones aren’t databent but rather analog electronic glitching directly processed on the device itself.
