Last Night I watched this great doc about illustrator extraordinaire Tomi Ungerer. I didn’t know his name, but when his drawings danced across the screen, I started to have flashbacks from my childhood… I kept zoning in to his faces and noses, saying to myself “I know these drawings!” And then Zeralda’s Ogre appeared on the screen. It was my all time fave book in the world! Well that and In the Night Kitchen, cos you could see Max’s willy! I need to find this book! I am on a quest to relive childhood magic. Tomi has published over 140 books, so he most likely made an impression on your young mind too. In fact friend and colleague, Maurice Sendak credits him for inspiration of Where the Wild Things Are! I highly recommend this brilliant documentary. A true trailblazing maverick who sparked young imaginations around the world. Thank you Tomi! Trailer below… On Netflix, itunes etc…

My old friend and Shakes Blotter collaborator – Mark McCloud – just did an interview for Vice Mag on the history of blotter art. Mark has the biggest collection on earth and is the world’s leading authority on the subject. Basically a Blotter God! Ha Ha! His home is a museum dedicated to the beauty of acid art called The Institute of Illegal Images.
I worked with Mark on my Shakes blotter art for my Black Leather 7″. Def a dream come true! If you are interested in all things blotter click the top pic to read the smashing interview. Mark flies on his own plane, it’s a very cool plane too! You wish you were on the same flight as him, trust me! Anyhoo there’s a few Shakes Blotters left, click the bottom pic for more info. more soon oxogd
