Don't Let The Man Get You Down

Hey. Im Kwaku and I love Art. Art is Life. Art is Wisdom. Art is my Weapon of Choice..

Fans of stop-motion, and general animation really need to check out the first episode of Junk HeadIt’s a 30 minute episode that took 4 years to make and was funded entirely by it’s creator, Takahide Hori. His indiegogo account can be found here and if you really like Junk Head you can contribute to the creation of Episode 2!!

iheartmyart:

Amazing illustrations by Tatsuyuki Tanaka. I came across his work in a book called Cannabis Works. All I know about him is that he has worked in animation - notably Akira. There doesn’t seem to be much of his art out there besides Cannabis Works and even that seems to be out of print. I would love to see more of his work if anyone has any links.

Jack Nicholson, who played the Joker in 1989 - and who was furious he wasn’t consulted about the creepy role - offered a cryptic comment when told Ledger was dead. 
“Well,” Nicholson told reporters in London early Wednesday, “I warned him.”

That last quote gave me chills

Really? Interesting if true

I read something that said he told him not to do it. Joker is one of, if not the, most sadistic villains. He kills to kill. There’s no method. Which is why all of the previous portrails were campy or jokey.

There is no way you can portray a character like that and not bring home even the smallest bits of it.  It’s kind of sad. The Joker was scary as shit, and I honestly believe that getting into that character messed with his head.

It would be really interesting to see the notebook Ledger kept while working up the character, maybe it did mess with his head.. and that quote is something to think about, if true. 

Heath Ledger was hugely affected by this role. Nicholson did warn him against it. To prepare, Ledger spent vast amount of time alone and kept a production diary as mentioned above. The last thing he wrote in his diary was BYE BYE. Ledger talked about his inability to fall asleep and how even with two ambien he barely slept at night. As is widely known, Ledger died of an overdose. Some say it was accidental while others believe he was a partier… The drugs he died of were meant for insonima, anxiety, pain, and a cold and none were taken in excess. Heath was a troubled man after his role as the joker, but no one can deny he played that role better than anyone ever had or ever will. The sadness of the situation aside, this is an amazing photo of the jokers.

Richard MacDonald

Educated in painting and illustration at the Art Center College of Design, MacDonald was successful as a commercial illustrator until his late thirties when a fire destroyed his studio, along with the accumulated works of his career as painter and illustrator. Subsequently, he began sculpting in earnest and within ten years became one of the most collected present-day figurative sculptors in America. His work has been acquired for the permanent collections of corporations such as AT&T, IBM, and Anheuser-Busch, as well as notable private collections. His work has been described as “paying tribute to the eloquence of the human form.” He is an advocate of neo-realism and figurative art, and has fostered emerging and professional artists through annual international Masters Workshops
