Well, another experiment with the digital colour. This time I left it as a pencil sketch then coloured it. I was going for that Tadahiro Uesugi feel. If you have never seen his work, you should check out his site, he is truly amazing. You can find his siteHERE He'll be in Los Angeles in November at THE NUCLEUS GALLERY in a show called 3 TREES MAKE A FOREST. He is doing the show with 2 other outstanding artists RONNIE DEL CARMEN and ENRICO CASAROSA

Maybe if I draw enough of them, I'll finally figure out how to draw them. That's the theory any ways.
In an attempt to loosen up with the inking, the left leg became kinda wonky, but I still like the drawing, flaws and all. The other's head may be a bit big, but I like the attitude. Not sure why I've been drawing girls with solid black eyes. There's more...

Just playing around some more with the brush pen. I'm starting to get a better handle on inking with a brush, but I'm still not sure if I want to ink my next story with one or not. I love the lively line and how, if you stay loose you can better maintain the spontaneity of the original drawing. On the other hand though, there are still elements that I like about inking with my pens. I guess I'll just have to do more tests...

I saw Delicatessen when I was in my last year of college. A friend had recommended it to me and the story was one of those that I was immediately drawn to just for its weirdness. It was one of those few films that I just bought without ever having seen it, knowing that it would be something that I would really enjoy. I was right, it quickly became one of my all time favorite films, and Jean Pierre Jeunet (even though he co-directed this with Marc Caro) instantly became one of my all time favorite directors.
Fast forward to last Saturday... The Rafael Film Centre was screening a copy of the film. I've never seen it on the big screen, but even better, Jeunet himself would be there to introduce the film!!! He gave a great little talk about the film including the fact that we in North America have never seen a proper print of the film. The printing process that was required for the film was rather expensive (since Darius Khondji was the cinematographer, I would imagine it was the bleach bypass process) Miramax refused to do it, so the print was never as good as the one seen in Europe. Jeunet said he was always rather embarassed by the "$#!T U.S print" as he put it. So, for this screening, a new digitally remastered print was made and we got to be the first U.S audience to see a proper print of the film. I always loved the cinematography of the film, but I was amazed by how much MORE colour there was in this print, it was simply stunning. The video copy I had was much more brown, but this new print was a true treat. Hopefully the new print means they are preparing to finally release the dvd over here, it has been something that has been missing from my collection for far too long. If you haven't seen Delicatessen, go to your local video store and hunt down a copy.
