Illustrating London life on a real torso in Emily + Tom's first promo

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Depending on your disposition this might make you feel a little icky but the first music video from directorial duo Emily + Tom is undoubtedly affecting. For I Dream in Colour’s single London, illustrator Cat Roissiter sets to work on an actual man’s skin, with an involved drawing of city life taking shape amid the odd mole and bit of nipple. It’s not until the final few frames that the sheer scale of the undertaking becomes clear, and even if it does leave you a tad queasy, there’s no denying it’s an ambitious, assured debut.
