This site has short extracts from a number of vintage (50s? 60?) Russian animations. They're fairly incomprehensible to me, but I like the look.
It lead me to do a search for Soviet book illustrations which produced this site. There are many things I like here - like this and this and even this slightly terrifying looking one, seemingly (but probably not) of a man about to be run over by a looming tank.
I've been keeping a visual journal recently and looking at Kerry's work has made me realise that I've been approaching it in the wrong way. I'm spending too much time on individual pages - they need to be rougher and more random.
So, two weeks no blogging. What a slacker. Admittedly, I was away for part of it - five days in smelly old Rotorua and then three days in East Gippsland giving my nasal passages an airing, but I have no valid excuses past last Wednesday except that killer combination of busy-ness and laziness. Will try to do better this week.
In honour of this evening's Oscars I have a link to this site - extracts from (apparently)proposed movie scenarios posted by the guy in Hollywood who gets to read them. The thing about them is that a lot don't really sound any worse that many movies already made.
