Carson McCullers Animated Short

I am very pleased and excited to announce that I will be making an animated short on the life and works of Carson McCullers! It will debut at Carson McCullers in the World: A Centenary Conference in Rome, Italy, 14-16 July 2017. I submitted a proposal to The Carson McCullers Society a few months back and got the good news this weekend! Yay! If you are not familiar with her work, she was an amazing Southern Gothic Author whose books came out in the 1940s-50s. She is also a hometown hero from Columbus, Georgia – just like me! I think I was about 12 when my mother brought home a copy of The Ballad of The Sad Cafe for me to read – A love story between a giant woman and rather small, hunchback man. The beauty of the grotesque in her book captivated my young mind and I was hooked. It also gave me hope as a young creative growing up in the stifling south. I thought, “she was from here and left and did something amazing – I can too!” She wrote other classics as well – The Heart is A Lonely Hunter, Member of The Wedding, Reflections in A Golden Eye. Some of her books were made into films, and she counted Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams as her contemporaries. A genius storyteller, years ahead of her time! So looking forward to this. If you would like to attend the conference click the pic above for info. Thank you to The Carson McCullers Society! More soon oxo

New Video for Alabama 3 by ME!!! WOO!

bama2
Ladies and Gentleman! I am very pleased┬áto share my new work with you! I directed the latest video for Alabama 3’s new single – (I’ll Never Be) Satisfied. I kinda can’t believe I just wrote that! But yes – it’s true! I had a 3 year break from videos after The Trip, and honestly wasn’t sure when or if I would ever do another one – but was over the moon when they got in contact and plucked me out of video retirement! Of course it is psychedelic and a bit rude – natch – that’s the way I roll! Ha! It’s a killer track and was honestly a labour of love! I am super proud of it and still pinching myself that I got to work with my heros! Woo! Big thanx to Steve Finnerty from A3 for making it happen! And ladypat for the special fx help! Please share the link and as always – ENJOY! oxo gd

This is a long time overdue, BUT I finally got around to putting my art archives up online! To be honest, it’s not EVERYTHING I have done, but a good majority of my work. I joined this new site PRZM. It’s cool because unlike ETSY, you can feature work for sale, but also show previous sold works, which is great, as I have many! And unlike Flickr, where you just have images, you can also have buy options! Pretty cool! It took me ages to put it together, and I am still adding to it, but a good portion of my creations are up and viewable to the world. There is a lot to see! So make a cup of tea and have a gander! If you see anything that catches your eye, get in touch! Click pic or here! More soon! oxo GD
