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:


  1. LOVE it! And congrats on the speakers, wow!

  2. amazing stuff!

  3. I really reaaaaaaaally love your multi-post-it stuff you're doing.
