The other day, I posted a video by Mark Leary on how to make a mobile. Mark’s video was quick, something you can think of as a video time lapse presentation. No instruction, but the visual was quite good and you could learn a lot. Here’s another video; which is much more like a tutorial with instructions. Laurent Davidson is the artist/instructor and he does a great job building a simple mobile from scratch using very basic materials. If you want to learn some basic principles behind creating mobiles, this is a great video. It’s also good for more experienced creators. I picked up several helpful hints.
Laurent is currently based in Carmel, California. Take a look at his website to see a lot of his neat, colorful work. I may show some individual works of his in a future post.
