Ryan Larkin 1943-2007
On a sad note Ryan Larkin passed away on on February 14th. Larkin was best known for his creative animation techniques and his oscar nominated NFB film, Walking.
In recent years most he is most notably known for being the subject of Academy Award winning short "Ryan", by Chris Landreth. As a child I watched many of his films without knowing it, and it wasn't until I was in my first year of animation, when seeing the short film Walking that I connected the artist with his work, and I was fully inspired.
I have posted a few items here including the news report on his passing, a link to the Wikipedia site on Larkin, and two of his films, Walking and Syrinx.
All about Ryan Larkin.
