Prisoners in Changi prison. Drawing by Ronald Searle. A quote from fellow prisoner Russell Braddon about Searle:
'He could barely move, and we had no food, he had dysentery, malaria and was covered in running sores and each day we expected him to die…If you can imagine something that weighs six stone or so, is on the point of death and has no qualities of the human condition that aren’t revolting, calmly lying there with a pencil and a scrap of paper, drawing, you have some idea of the difference in temperament that this man had from the ordinary human being.'
I feel ambivalent
Here’s an animated music video, which is a tribute to my work. I was not involved in the creative process.
I received a message from one of the videos’ creators telling me he wanted me to be the ‘first to know’ which is strange considering I also received messages from people who said my name was not credited this morning.
the creators claim that the video is a tribute to me, and I will say I think they did a decent job adapting my style, which I admit is quite flattering to see. Viewing the video made me feel like I drew it myself. I’m starting to feel like Dan Clowes…
What do you think? (please be respectful)
I don’t know who would think this is flattering, Maybe if they at least ran it by the artist before the video, but doing it after the fact is super shady. You want to flatter the artist? I would refer to FuckYouPayMe.
Small Band in a small label should know better than this. Hows a dude supposed to eat?
