This week from the 24th-29th is the Ann Arbor Film Festival, and I've ben here all week. It's ben a very interesting and motivating experience. The reason this festival is a lot different from the other festivals I've attend ( Ottawa International, PlatForm, Kafi..) is that it is primarily focused around experimental animation films. To be completely honest I often find experimental animation very hard to watch, and prefer narrative pieces. However, a few of the films have caught my attention, one in particular, "Danse Macabre" .
I intend to use this blog as a way of showing current art projects. Right now i'm finishing 3 painting series and 130 felt snails to hang at the Landmark Main Art in Royal Oak, MI. The Galley will go up starting March 19th, 2009. I'm really excited!! In my next post I'll show some examples from the show, and some pages out of my sketchbook. Yay!!
