This Artist Is About To Hypnotize You, And All He Needs To Do It Is A Black Pen

I can’t be the only one who gets sucked into the art video wormhole on Instagram.

Although work-in-progress videos have been artistic standbys since the dawn of social media, short Instagram clips are quickly eclipsing the longer versions that call YouTube home. Something about watching incredible drawings come to life right in front of you in under a minute is oddly satisfying.

And Maine-based illustrator Visothkakvei has what is arguably the most hypnotizing Instagram page of all time. His creative eye and penchant for precision are about to lull you into a trance, so do yourself a favor and make sure your boss is nowhere in sight before you dive in.

His work might seem simplistic at first glance, but you’ll be singing a different tune when you’re 20 videos deep and you end up missing your train home from work.

Do you ever look at what some people can do and instantly feel inadequate? Same. I’ll just continue being useless, I guess.

For more incredible art that makes you feel bad about your contributions to society, be sure to follow Visothkakvei on Instagram!
