Jasper is a documentary film maker from Holland with a Moleskine doodling habit. This started off as a felt pen sketch and then was scanned in and given a digital makeover. Jasper has an interesting story about how he discovered the music of Gainsbourg - "In 1993, when I was 23, I was a conscientious objector and had to do community service instead. I was employed in a youth hostel in Holland. There I met a colleague objector who had this tape, "De Gainsbourg à Gainsbarre". I was immediately taken by the voice (the crooner as well as the mumbler) and his weird ways of working with words". Have a look at Jasper's site to see examples of his film making.
