German artist Tilman Singer brings pro skateboarders into a tiny paper world where they kickflip monster books and railslide paper clips in his imaginative video titled Skateboardanimation. Using paper cutouts of the skaters from magazines and environments he created from paper, twigs, wire, and foliage, he undoubtedly spent countless hours crafting this stop-motion animation flick to great effect. The video even starts off with a rad skate zoetrope.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
