This is the lineart for a title-page illustration in my Dad’s book. This particular chapter deals with news stories about Elephants in Science.
In a completely unrelated topic, Ted Mathot has assembled a list ofwhat he considers to be the 20 best films of the last 20 years in his Current Flavor blog, which inspired me to try and do the same. It isn’t as easy as it sounds, firstly because so many of my all time favourites are from much earlier, and secondly because I have a hard time sorting out the guilty pleasures and sentimental favourites from what is a truly well made movie… but here is what I came up with (in no particular order):
Being John Malkovitch, the 6th Sense, Crumb, Ed Wood, My Neighbour Totoro, Lantana, Memento, The Unforgiven, Blue Velvet, Old Boy, Bottle Rocket, Fargo, the Fog of War, Heavenly Creatures, Groundhog day, Two Hands, Proof (the Australian one), Hannah and her Sisters, Sexy Beast, Spirited Away.
How about you?
