Khatsahlano Festival

Where's she going? To the W. 4th street party. Here's the poster for drawing the hipsters in eyewear at the Clearly Contacts caricature booth yesterday. Lot's of fun in the unrelenting sun.

Caricookitures

Hi viewers

Been so belligerent, I forgot to blog for the last few years, so will try to catch up. This is NOT a 'New Year's resolution', but more of a 'New Year's momentary notion' - so don't hold me to it, it's not OFFICIAL.

This Christmas I did some caricatures that were to be iced onto cookies, (a new one for me). Luckily someone else did the baking. Elves, I think.

inedible version

see you next year.

Roger Ebert

Very saddened to hear of the passing of Roger Ebert. He was by far the sharpest commentator around & a very class act. Our condolences to Chaz & company.

This has happened to me many times  - I'm surfing round the net for the obscure & cool stuff no one knows, but I love -  Walt Kelly, Jacques Tati... - among the 3 or 4 comments left by various eccentric internet epicureans there'll be Roger Ebert with a brilliant comment that I wish I could have written. A man was ubiquitous, with excellent taste & judgement all round.

A couple of years ago, through a mutual friend (thanks Marie!). the Eberts asked if I could make them a  little title card for their show - in a Saul Bass or Third Man theme, (it can never get cooler than that!!!). It's short, but here it is:

You can't top this quote from roger from the NY Times:

"His credo in judging a film’s value was a simple one: “Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions never lie to you.”

Not sure what these guys are in charge of, but it looks important.

Tank Girl

This is some animation I did at Natterjack Animation for the Warner Bros Movie "Tank Girl" a number of  years back. Not surprisingly, it's a touching tale of a girl and her tank.

Powerpoint illustrations

Hi bloggies

Sorry I haven't been around lately - lot's of instructing has been going on.

However, school's almost out, so time to blog again.Here's some Powerpoint slides I made this quarter. Don't ask me what points these illustrate unless you want to sit through a long dry lecture. You're better off making up your own knowledge to apply to them.
