An Augmented Reality Made With Hand-Drawn Cartoons and an iPhone

By Robert Sorokanich on at

Prolific doodler Marty Cooper carries around animation cells, a marker, and some liquid paper as he wanders the city, creating whimsical scenes that turn mundane background imagery into charming mini-stories. And he painstakingly captures them on his iPhone to create the animated world of Aug(De)Mented Reality.

These grin-inducing little vignettes defy rigid definition: are they hand-drawn GIFs? Stop-motion drawing? An augmented, imaginary world? Who knows. Who cares! They're just plain fun to watch. Which is probably the whole point. [gnarcal on YouTube]
