Sometimes you don’t need a lot to create something great. Armed with a simple telephone, a few sheets of paper, and an overflowing imagination, Shin, a young Japanese artist sketches a series of surprising illustrations. The best of his videos are those where he uses a series of cups and pullies to recount an elaborate story.

As a fan of animation and mangas, Shinrashige stages characters from his favorite series, imagining different scenes and scenarios for them to star in. He has a particular penchant for playing with the frontiers between drawing and reality, integrating his sketches into day-to-day objects, rendering them part of the décor.
