This is my mom, Phyllis, symbolically fighting cancer. She’s gone 9 years in October. She fought so hard. I’m cultivating this energy for myself—sure life is unfair—but be of good cheer, surround yourself with love, and fight for what’s right!
RIP Richard Williams
Richard Williams has died. He is one of the people who has inspired me over the years. I have done rudimentary animation as part of my web work over the years. Some of that work was featured in a book on Macromedia Flash 2 a long time ago. I can’t claim the title of animator but in some moments—drawing, programming—I apply what I’ve learned from reading and watching Williams’ work. RIP Richard Williams.

My father told me when I was in my teens: “you take in a lot of media, son, you should try to put some out there” and I think about that every day. Contributing to the latest @burn_all_books Sundays Quarterly was been an honor. This is my proud of my work face. More is coming.

More art framing! This was a test print through Burn All Books’ Riso printer for Sundays Quarterly 2019.1. It’s an inadvertent exquisite corpse as it includes test runs of layers by me, @unradmotions & @casual_vaper. Follow @burn_all_books for more awesome art. #risoprint #sandiego #zines

Miracle Mile Q&A!
Miracle Mile is one of my favorite movies. It is downbeat, carries a message, has a relatable fellow who lives in Los Angeles, has a short love story, has a great rapprochement in it, tons of vivid couples. Vivid individual characters who read like real Angelenos to me. The argument about the best way to get to Hogly Wogly’s Tyler Texas Barbecue is one of the most L.A. diner conversations I’ve ever seen depicted. I’m pretty sure Walter and Jeff Lebowski’s argument about the toe is also set at Johnnie’s on Wilshire but I’m too lazy to look it up.
There’s a wonderful new podcast interview with the writer/director Steve De Jarnatt with the amazing Q&A: Miracle Mile – 30th Anniversary Q&A – Steve De Jarnatt.
It was a delight hearing Mr. De Jarnatt go over details I love. Johnnie’s and the Cliffs Notes to Gravity’s Rainbow and the bedlam on Wilshire. The crew of people working to survive, the urgency of trying to survive. The thinking through how would we survive when under the gun, in the middle of the night, feels real. Also on his website he has some paintings by Paul Chadwick from the era that are really vivid.
Miracle Mile is all so beautiful and bleak and wonderful and I was so glad to listen to this podcast. For fans of Miracle Mile, it’s a must. If you’re not a fan, watch it and you might be. De Jarnatt says the best way to watch is the Blu-Ray – which I want to seek out now.
In the meantime, listen to the podcast: Miracle Mile – 30th Anniversary Q&A – Steve De Jarnatt
