Update (Welles) …

My day job consists of being a graphic artist, so I thought I’d post the above drawing I did several years ago in light of the newly-announced Orson Welles retrospective happening simultaneously in late-February at the Film Forum in New York City and the American Cinematheque in Los Angeles.

While it will be a treat to see any monumental, baroque Welles film on the big screen (like 1962’s The Trial, a criminally underrated movie), I’m particularly excited about the rare bits and scraps of unfinished projects compiled by the Munich Filmmuseum in this series.

For more info on Welles, be sure to check out the excellent online resource, Wellesnet.

Back from Palm Springs, I’ll be adding some new commentary soon.
