While flipping channels a few weeks back, I happened to stumble upon the film anthology Tokyo! — specifically the segment “Interior Design,” directed by Michel Gondry. Great short film. While the credits were rolling I noticed that it was adapted from Cecil and Jordan in New York by Gabrielle Bell. I quickly jotted that down and later googled it, and I’m glad I did, because it introduced me to the great work of Bell, a comic artist. So I recommend checking out all of it, the film, the website (currently featuring a “comicumentary” about ComicCon), the graphic novels.
Check out her new site, and of course her paintings, at jennalucente.com.
Here is the praise I heaped on this truly inspiring book:
"Amanda Soule has created a wonderful guide that nourishes the wellspring of creativity already inherent in the family dynamic. She encourages discovery, ingenuity, sharing, and celebration in a way that helps each family member grow, while simultaneously bringing the whole family closer together. A truly meaningful book for and about that which we hold dearest."
Be sure to check out Rosa Murillo’s Found Art Tuesday project, where she makes art and then leaves it in public places for others to find. And do watch the video below in which Rosa documents the creation of one of her recent Found Art Tuesday pieces. (Special thanks to Robayre for reminding me about Rosa’s wonderful project.)
