“Growing up, my dad collected all sorts of weird records, books, and antique toys. He had so much stuff, he even had his own room for it all. I would sit with him and there was always something new and interesting to look at. One day he brought out a Mickey Mouse flipbook, and I remember being in awe of what I assumed was somehow real magic in the palm of my hands. It sparked in me a love of animation and flipbooks. Here I am now, decades later...a professional FLIPBOOK MAKER!”

That is how 33-year-old Ben Zurawski from the US describes himself on his website, TheFlippist.com. On his site, Ben exhibits his flip book work so far and has a few helpful links if you want to have one his incredible works of your own!

Of all the objects in his father’s various collections, the small flip books made the biggest impression on the boy. “I remember being mesmerized,” Zurawski says of his first flip book encounter. “Cartoons were things you only got to see on TV, but with a flip book, I could make animation happen with my own hands.”

In this clip, Ben shows us some of his Halloween-inspired flip books, ranging from an ordinary love story to a spooky strip with a plot twist! We used to do this on the corners of our notepads, Ben managed to make a business out of it!
