Drawing with water

I was reading over at BoingBoing about a cool graphic novel by Emmanuel Guibert called: Alan's War: The Memories of G.I. Alan Cope . Sounds like it would be a great read, but one of the really interesting things I found about it all was in the comments section where one reader points out a YouTube video which demonstrates Guibert's fascinating illustration technique. He literally draws with water, then when he's done, adds a small drop of ink. It's amazing to watch.

He did the entire book this way.
