I found these designs the other night, originally from a pitch at Chuck Gammage, for an animated version of Vinyl Cafe, that unfortunately did not. Nevertheless very good designs by Trevor Deane-Freeman, and clean line drawings by yours truly. Colour versions coming soon !

"Art is not like other culture because its success is not made by its audience. The public fill concert halls and cinemas every day, we read novels by the millions and buy records by the billions. We the people, affect the making and the quality of most of our culture, but not our art.
The Art we look at is made by only a select few. A small group create, promote, purchase, exhibit and decide the success of Art. Only a few hundred people in the world have any real say. When you go to an Art gallery, you are simply a tourist looking at the trophy cabinet of a few millionaires."
"The time of getting fame for your name on its own is over. Artwork that is only about wanting to be famous will never make you famous. Fame is a by-product of doing something else. You don't go to a restaurant and order a meal because you want to have a shit."

I should mention that this was mostly inspired by listening to Blind Willie McTell - The Last Session, and if you get a chance check out some of these links where you can listen to some clips, and learn why Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain, and Jack White were all inspired by Blind Willie.
Wikipedia's in depth info
Here are some song clips from the Last Session album.
Baby It Must Be Love -clip
Kill It Kid - clip
Goodbye Blues - clip
Blind Willie McTell – Statesboro Blues
P.S. the layout of the blog is a little wacky these days but hopefully i can get things worked out soon.

Anyway here is a Betty Boop cartoon, and although it contains questionable material, is a very good example of what talented artists can draw.
See another Boop cartoon HERE.
