Not only are fish tasty but they are fascinating, and this morning, while surfing the net, this little beauty caught my eye. Call me a shark, but in order to post this with any satisfaction, I had to perform some digital trickery. On the right is the original, but the composition was stagnant, even for a study.

But as they say–whoever they are– “A bad day of fishing is still better than a good day at the office!”

So grab a cold beer, chips, tartar sauce and enjoy!

“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.

The Maker, by Zeolous Creative

The Maker-Trailer

Christopher and Christine Kezelos, owners of Zealous Creative (@ZealousCreative) and directors of The Maker, are brilliant and their video is nothing short of genius.

In a magical five and a half minutes, a sense of passion and urgency is summoned in us to . . . well, I’ll let you decide. But I will say that it’s astounding how they manage to expand the story into eternity—past and future—in the last 30 seconds. Watch the full video, below:

The Maker has an impressive list of awards: recognition from the ITSA Film Festival, Couch Fest Film Festival, SXSW Film Design Awards and 2012 Bondi Short Film Festival for Best Production Design (Australia). Here’s director Christopher Kezelos interviewing animator/dolly maker Mark Lagana about his industrious designs—including his pipe dolly and bicycle wheel dolly—and use of recycled materials.
