BRIAN BUTLER The Slackers and friends…

Check this hella awesome drawing!

it’s by this dude Brian Butler. Hit his blog.

He does these kind of sketchbook drawings at gigs and festivals (The Slakers are a sick old-school Ska band). He takes down notes of all the people there and some lines of funny dialogue. He’s also done Paper Toy work and Cupco collaborations, hundreds of murals, skate decks, wu-tang t-shirts and hundreds of sketchbook pages. Spoilt for choice.

 

Getting that mood indigo…

The video is a Zagreb animation Osvetnik (Dušan Vukotić, 1958). Filled with lilac scenes.

These Francis Bacon paintings are the tones I’m looking for in the bar scene. I want a brown/manila tone for the floor and bar with black lines. and purples for the characters and significant props in the background. Even the wine and food will be purple.

another Dušan Vukotić animation Koncert za mašinsku pušku (1958) this time in greys and browns. I love the style of this one and how the animation is synced with the music. Some brilliant visuals in there.

A couple more colour references. The Witches and The Milk Tray Man.
