Feathers number one, whimsy with an anime in Europe feel

Posted in art, comics on January 31, 2015 by Asher Rospigliosi

Nice simple story in issue one. A poor old man shelters a vulnerable child (with feathers), a father indulges an adventitious girl, against the wishes of her strict and conformist mum. Elegant guards chase ragged urchins through quasi antique,  European streets. A feathered boy intervenes against injustice and guards. A feel good first issue, with anime graphics and some charm.

JAN ŠVANKMAJER: The Inner Life of Objects some really cool creatures

I really enjoyed seeing the sculptures Jan Svankmajer made with found objects. A fantastic  form of taxidermy.JAN-SVANKMAJER-The-Inner-Life-of-Objects

His film looks interesting, I love Tenniel’s visualisation of Alice, but his 1986 film looked pretty cool too.

Nice evening out with Mitch and Eme, topped and tailed with a great session preparing the Business School for open day with a cool bunch of international students to start and a Meat Liquor burger to finish, and a quick couple of fine bourbons in the Great Eastern along the way.
