Music videos have become a prominent part of what we do here on the Juxtapoz site because a ton of artists we know and enjoy have been getting work in animating, stop-motiong, or directing some of the best videos out there. We haven't seen a good watercolor video this year, or ever, but this video for Breakbot's "Bay I'm Yours" single is comprised of over 2000 individual watercolor paintings, composed by Irina Dakeva at Wizz Productions. For you counting at home, 2,000 is more than a lot.

We love it when we find kindered spirits of pop-culture debauchery and current affairs humor. Riding sharks, Obama on corgis, Olympic crashes, old WWF matches with Hulk Hogan, Conrad Ruiz jumps around cultural icons with watercolors on large format paper. He even created a San Francisco-themed "disasterpiece" that could be the world's biggest watercolor painting. Great works all around.
