Bruno Bozzetto & Oscar Grillo

Two grand masters of hand-drawn animation, Bruno Bozzetto and Oscar Grillo, will be heading for Vienna in October. This is a pre-pre-announcement for the PIXEL Conference, October 05 - 07, 2012. Austrian Academy of Sciences. Save the date! :)

By the by, I put this together from an one-minute telephone doodle I scribbled the other day. I tried to maintain the pencilly and sketchy hand-drawn look of the original piece:

Andy Warhol Eating A Hamburger

Via kottge

The scene is part of a film done by Jorgen Leth called 66 scenes from america.
Leth had his assistant buy some burgers and directly advised him to buy some in halfway neutral packaging as Leth was afraid that Warhol might reject some brands (Warhol always had an obsession with some of his favorite brands).
So Andy Warhol finally did arrive at the studio, of course along with his bodyguards, and when he saw the selection of burgers the assistant had brought he asked "Where is the McDonald's?" and Leth -- slightly in panic -- was immediately like "I thought you would maybe not like to identify..." and Warhol answered "no that is the most beautiful". Leth offered to let his assistant quickly run to McDonald's but Warhol refused like "No, never mind, I will take the Burger King."

Alba's Monster

This beast here was 100% art directed by my 5 year old niece Alba, colours, shape, features, everything. I just followed her artistic instructions. My sister didn't allow us to watch cartoons, that's why we started creating our own one...
