Thijme Termaat decided once that he shouldn't drive a car because his mind wandered too much. He wanted to be an artist, but dropped out of design school after two months when he realized it wasn't going to lead him to the freedom he longed for. Living at home in a small, rural town in the Netherlands, Termaat taught himself to paint—not with books or tutorials, but by "trying and experimenting."
Then he made this incredible video. At first it appears to just be a stop-motion video of him making one painting (which would be impressive to anyone who has ever tried making a stop motion video—it's a tedious, time-consuming process). But just past the minute-and-a-half mark it shifts to a whole other level and we see why Termaat might be distracted by his own mind while driving.
