Matchstick men and flip books: a serious guide to a fun topic

We show you step-by-step how to bring matchstick men to life – with a full range of movements and emotional expressions. Moving images can also be produced by producing phenakistiscopes, zoetropes and flip books.This makes the drawing of fun cartoon figures not only an artistic challenge, but also a great pleasure.

Activity: After presenting the different forms of simple animated movies, we bring matchstick men and other figures to life in the form of phenakistiscopes, zoetropes and flip books.
