Begone Dull Care

Begone Dull Care

“Begone Dull Care” (c)2012 – Acrylic on Canvas Board, 12″ x 9″

This is a quick study inspired by my memory of this short film by Norman McLaren–the NFB-renowned Canadian (yeah!) animator and film director–that I saw in my UVic film studies class.

You might remember McLaren best for his exquisite, fluent Muybridge-like “Pas de deux,” but I hope you enjoy this snappy little video of animated drawings on film. It’s an abstract visual description of jazz–at its finest–by the  legendary Oscar Peterson.
