Most music videos strive to be artsy, and the latest video 'London' by 'I Dream in Colour' is the epitome of artistic creativity.

The video shows a man's body canvased with drawings and architecture related to the city of London. It's directed by Emily+Tom (Emily Cussins and Tom Webber) and illustrated by Cat Roissiter.

The faceless man being canvased is unknown; however, his torso, jaw and arms are plastered with caricatures using an ink pen. As the music plays, several close-up shots are captured showing the tiniest detail such as hair and wrinkles. The drawings continue to grow as the music video plays and viewers are able to see the London come to life. The model's nipples, birthmarks and moles are incorporated and used as part of the drawings.

The 'I Dream in Colour' video was shot in one afternoon using only a camera, black gel pen, permanent marker and a watercolor brush.
