"off-leash snow storm" posted on

I made this drawing of my dog and her friend yesterday was posted on the NY times' neighborhood blog, "the Local." I made it with a wacom cintiq tablet in photoshop using the stencil/silkscreen style I've been working on this past year. I hope to make real silkscreens like this in 2011- an urban version of Sabra Field maybe?

"Capturing King" non-fiction animation for Martin Luther King day

Civil rights photographer John Goodwin talks about documenting Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "anti Vietnam" speech at Riverside church, April 4th, 1967. This was the first time that MLK Jr.publicly spoke out against the war, linking the US civil rights struggle to the injustice of the citizens of Vietnam being bombed by our military. In the speech he calls the US government "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today." I interviewed Mr. Goodwin at his church in New Jersey last year for this piece. His photos were used as reference for the drawings of Dr. King and The audio of Dr. King is from a recording of the speech.
