Illustrating The Leftovers: Watch This Time-lapse Drawing of Kevin Garvey

Artist and The Leftovers fan Sara Haslam noticed — like many other curious viewers — the recurrence of deer throughout the series. Two are killed in Season 1, while references to deer grace the inside of Kevin Senior’s copy of National Geographic and the walls of the cabin where Patti Levin is held captive. 

While there’s yet to be an explicit explanation regarding the animals’ mysterious appearances, Haslam incorporates it into her time-lapse drawing of Kevin Garvey. Using marker pens on brown paper, she combines Chief Kevin Garvey (sans beard) with a deer in one mesmerizing time-lapse video.
