SOBER INKTOBER

November 15, 2018

https://youtu.be/PBXrQPPIoSs

During the month of October, I participated in Inktober, but instead of following the prompts, I started a portrait of a famous person (or character) per day. Each day, I picked someone iconic whose birthday it was and made a black line drawing on a canvas. These will all become full color portraits, but here is what they look like now!

You can own any of these portraits if you want! Just let me know which one is speaking to you and we can make a plan to get it on your wall. I am currently coloring and editing these paintings, but am willing to sell as is for a cheaper rate! But it will look better when it’s finished.

The subjects in the portraits:

Jimmy Carter, Gandhi, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Susan Sarandon (Witches of Eastwick), Kate Winslet (Titanic), Jeremy Sisto (Jesus), Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling (The Notebook), Sigourney Weaver (Alien), John and Yoko, Jessica Harper, Cardi B, Aleister Crowley, Beverly Crusher and Jean Luc Picard (Star Trek), Udo Kier (with Madonna and Co. from “Sex”), Neitzsche, Angela Lansbury (Murder She Wrote), Evel Knievel, Klaus Kinski (Aguirre Wrath of God), John Lithgow (Harry and the Hendersons), Snoop Dogg, Kim Kardashian, Jeff Goldblum (The Fly), Weird Al and Parents, Drake (DeGrasse), Picasso, Hillary, Roberto Benigni, Bill Gates, Bob Ross, Henry Winkler (Fonzi), Vanilla Ice (Ninja Turtles)

A perfect idea for holiday gifting.

Movie Review: Body Double (1984)

February 14, 2014

20140206-014835.jpg

This film (dir. Brian De Palma) has peeping tom stuff, claustrophobic stuff, sexy Melanie Griffith, etc.

Not my all-time favorite De Palma, but pretty sweet.

Movie Review: East of Eden (1955)

February 7, 2014

20140206-010732.jpg

I was inspired to watch this film (dir. Elia Kazan) for the first time after watching Scorsese’s “A Letter to Elia.”

It’s good. James Dean, yes.

Movie Review: On the Waterfront (1954)

February 7, 2014

20140206-012716.jpg

I was inspired to watch this film (dir. Elia Kazan) for the first time after watching Scorsese’s “A Letter to Elia.”

It’s really good, simple story, complex emotions, Brando is captivating.

Movie Review: Naked in New York (1993)

December 14, 2013

20131214-064007.jpg

I thoroughly enjoyed this Martin Scorsese-produced film from the EARLY nineties (dir. Daniel Algrant).

We see risk-taking here, innovative story telling, breaking the fourth wall, magical realism, a young Mary-Louise Parker, …

It’s a sweet coming of age film, Eric Stoltz in one of the better, almost Stoltzier, roles.

Movie Review: Search and Destroy (1995)

December 14, 2013

20131214-061704.jpg

I watched this (dir. David Salle) while on a kick of seeking out Martin Scorsese-produced films.

It is so early nineties, very psychedelic. Can’t remember what happens in it really, but Christopher Walken is in it.

It’s one of those Griffin Dunne vehicles. I liked After Hours so much and he has a mustache in this one.

20131214-062739.jpg

I do recommend it.

Movie Review: Passion (2012)

December 14, 2013

20131214-055827.jpg

A new Brian De Palma film. Good psychological thrills. Rachel McAdams is a good evil creep. Harkens back to classic BDP maybe. Still not as good as his older films but whatever.

Movie Review: A Letter to Elia (2010)

December 14, 2013

20131214-054424.jpg

This PBS American Masters documentary (dir. Kent Jones and Martin Scorsese) is an inspiring look at Elia Kazan’s life and career, and stuff he went through like getting blacklisted as a communist and naming names and all that.

Narrated by Martin Scorsese.

20131214-054928.jpg

After this I was inspired to watch the great Kazan films, East of Eden and On the Waterfront.

Movie Review: Parkland (2013)

December 4, 2013

20131204-034740.jpg

Tom Hanks’s new Playtone Movie (dir. Peter Landesman). This was pretty good. Style, tone, acting. Lil’ Billy Bob, lil’ Marcia Gay. Giamatt’ plays a tortured Zapruder.

Lotta young actors in this. I’m pretty sure they cast out of and shot around Austin. I believe I saw Austin actor and improviser Arthur Simone in the operating room there.

I used to work with a dude who was like the brother-in-law of Bryan Batt, character and broadway actor, who plays a small role in the film. Apparently, he originated lots of roles on Broadway, including Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast, according to my former co-worker. I mostly recognize him from the character on Mad Men who was fired for being gay in the plot of like Season 2.

Anyways. Kennedy was a baller. Sucks Magneto had to blow those brains out.
