See all 21 layers in this time-lapse vid for #10 in a series …

Jeremy Fish Time Lapse: As The Mind Wanders, Decoder Ring #10

The Decoder Ring Design Concern is a design partnership in Austin, TX whose mission is “to do work we love for clients we admire.” They also do a series of fine art prints where they let you click-through the process layers of each artist’s work. Making the finished product that much more impressive.

This is the tenth installment in their Decoder Print Artist Series. Past artists include Tara McPherson, Gary Baseman, and Dalek.

Following this over the last several days I thought it’d be rad to see ‘em in motion. Edison’s “Tonka Truck” felt like the perfect soundtrack. Enjoy.
