This Dreamworks trailer for How To Train Your Dragon 2 is pretty sweet. You go Hiccup and Toothless!
Planning a trip to Thailand to get the snot beat out of me, err I mean, further my Muay Thai training. I’m excited to see the elephants there as well, so I did this watercolor.
A little hint of what’s comin’.

This beautifully made short film directed by Marcus Söderlund highlights two things I cherish deeply. Motor racing and the story of Bruce McLaren. I grew up admiring his story as a kid because his life resembled much of the questions I sought out in why tragic things have to happen to people of courage. “To do something well is so worthwhile that to die trying to do it better, can not be foolhardy” and “on that beautiful summer day, on that racetrack, I did more than leave a name and a memory, hopefully, I became an inspiration” narrates the monologue. Thank you, sir McLaren for the answers.

Nice hot day today in NYC, which made me want a big ol’ banana split. Like the kind you’d find on main street in Disney World when it’s like a hundred degrees out and you have melted ice cream all over and you’re trying to eat it and draw the marching band going by at the same time.

Looking into cymatics in relation to a project and having fun with Chladni patterns. Video shows a basic Chladni Plate and frequency generator, although I prefer the original violin bow method. Note the increased frequency changes the pattern to greater complexity.
I never stopped playing with crayons.
This is an amazing animation by Robin Frohardt. I mentioned this a while back as it was part of a Puppet Festival I made drawings of in Brooklyn. Robin’s animation is a three minute trailer for an imagined film inspired by the great stories and difficulties of the production of Werner Herzog’s original Fitzcarraldo. The video that follows is Robin’s spoof of Les Blank’s Burden of Dreams, which is a documentary of the making of Herzog’s film. Both animations are made entirely of cardboard.
Enjoyed thumbing through an old picture book project. Good time to revisit them. Into the art file of memories I go.
It’s practically a crime to saunter in NYC, but there are places to the contrary.
