Out Of Picture



Last night I went along to the OUT OF PICTURE exhibition/book launch at the Arludik Gallery. Several of the artists who contributed to the book were over here to draw for the fans & chat about the show.
I'm working with Bob Camp who knows these guys from his time at Blue Sky so he introduced me to them - they were all very pleasant chaps & happily made drawings in my sketchbook for me.
There were a lot of animation & comic people at the show and the party afterwards. Moebius was there but I didn't get a chance to talk to him, although Bob did. It was my pleasure to meet Pierre Alary & share a few beers with him, he kindly made a unique self portrait in my sketchbook. I also got to meet a couple of the fellas who made BURNING SAFARI - the terrific short from Les Gobelins this year. These guys are SO good!

I had noticed this trend.
It is a peculiar thing but I'm happy to accept the comparisons...

Dean- this is medium cool blogging activity for me! Not able to access internet so much these days. Done a ton of drawing but unable to scan.

Boris- Bob is the MANLIEST goddamn animator I've ever met- more than you even.

Stef- Pierre & I got on like a maison a feu! Can you send me his email- we were too drunk to exchange properly!

Oscar - you remind me of Elliot

Elliot- did you have good trip in the States? You're an international jet-setter these days.

San Fran was wonderful mate.
As for being an international jetsetter - that's what you can be when you are unemployed and irresponsible.
