Film Night

Image
Unrelated to my dancing witches, I watched the 2013 horror comedy Witching and Bitching(Las Brujas De Zugarramurdi) the other night and really, really liked it. It starts out as a 'wacky crime' caper but at the arrival of a village (Zugarramurdi) and the introduction of some great characters (among them Javier Botet, Terele P├ívez  and Carolina Bang) the movie turns up the horror/comedy. The entertaining weirdness culminates in a great 'Wicker Man' type parade, featuring'Krampus' Devil Parade characters that are you know, popular on the Continent.

I adapted that wakefield tree drawing I did the other day for a friends birthday card.

Trees at Thornes Park

Image
I do the Thornes Park trim trail three times a week and this is a view from the parallel bars, looking West over to Gillsike House.

Wakefield Trees 3 WIP

Another tree quick draw work in progress. Thornes Park again looking towards Gillsike House. The trees are at their barest and will look different in a weeks time as spring rises. The maroon getting in the way is me, blowing small puddles of ink into sticks and tree branch shapes.

Another tall thin drawing of a Wakefield tree. This time at Heath Common.

Wakefield Tree

A long thin drawing of a tree where I go running in Wakefield (Thornes Park). Drawn on A2 heavyweight cartridge paper with a variety of brushes, pens and inks.

Another quick draw. One of the trees where I go running on the trim trail at Thornes Park. Drawing bigger than usual on heavyweight A2 cartridge paper with a variety of pens, brushes and ink.

Ash in Ivy

Caught my cat Ash, climbing in the ivy. It's that time of year.




The WolverKong

Logan for me was a much better film experience than Kong: Skull Island. Both have difficult scripts, both for very different reasons but  Logan has a secret weapon which is the three main actors, who give an extraordinary performance through out. I saw Kong a week after seeing Logan, I'm still thinking and recommending people see Logan, where as Kong is another tired blockbuster which has been seen a thousand times before. Which is okay, I went in knowing that I was going to see a movie about a giant ape, I'm just not thinking about it.
