8 white paintings

January 19, 2012

I’ve been engaged in a protracted push, pull, leading, following, yielding, gouging, scraping, sanding, layering since the last post and now these 8 panels are done. All are 24 by 38 inches acrylic on masonite.

These are all very delightful. I guess this is why I keep my Tag Surfer. Every once in a while something this charming and wonderful shows up.

Film: James Robertson, a graduate of the Bealart program, was involved in the making of Pixar’s Toy Story 3

This summer while you’re munching popcorn and taking in Toy Story 3, you can thank a London talent for some of the magic unfolding before your eyes.

Pixar storyboard artist James Robertson was born and raised in London and it was here that he first learned his craft.

It’s been quite the journey for the Bealart graduate who, at just 30, is working at the pinnacle of his field with San Francisco-based animation giant, Pixar.

More quiet fame

May 10, 2010

I’m not really very involved with the day to day comics scene in London so I was surprised to find this CBC story of a young man named Marc Bell winning the Doug Wright award.  I have seen some work somewhere, mistaking it for Kim Moodie. Apparently Kim Moodie, Greg Curnoe and Elsie Segar are influences in Marc’s work. Any photo’s of Marc Bell seem to be of the back of his head which is suitable for London really, where it is possible to live and work and be completely anonymous, to exhibit in Montreal and New York, and be entirely unknown in The Creative City where bears get shot and chickens can’t come home to roost.

Extensive articles and interviews at Drawn And Quarterly.

A Compare and Contrast between Bell and Curnoe at Steel Bananas.

Here’s a brilliant bit of relief for those Londoners suffering from pathetic comics.
