Love Letter to Rome
In 1972 Rome, three art school seniors, along with their friends and professors on RISD's European Honors Program (EHP) made a film called Maiali Delle Strade [pronounced: my-ahh-lee-dell-lay-strah-day] or "Road Hogs". The film, brainchild of then-senior Barry Koch, created in 8mm...
Gypsy jazz CD cover
Somewhere around March 2007 I rediscovered the swing music of the Parisian jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, a Manouche Gypsy best known for his work with Stephane Grappelli in Le Quintette du Hot Club de France in the 30's. A legend in his time, he is heralded to this day for creating a...
Environmental impact
It's been awhile since I lasted posted, but there's no time like the present. This is somewhat of a departure for me to work primarily digitally, but the problem called for a clean, straightforward technique according to a tight agenda with little room for experimentation. I was able,...
Two "Cut to the Drummer" entries
CTTD is, as you know by now if you've been reading Drawger, the brainstorm of Sandra Dionisi, artist and Creative Director of The Bepo + Mimi Project in Toronto.

I feel good.

Don't just sit there
Are you tired of the Republican smear machine...of John McCain pandering to the right wing and saying anything to win the election...of speaking down to Barack Obama with references like "that one"... of calling Obama, a man of mixed race who under great obstacles lifted himself up by his...
Valentine From Sis
An early harbinger of a lifelong obsession with music. I got this in a Valentine today from my sentimental sister. It's a pic of me in my formative years with next-door neighbor Danny Shwartzman, me strumming on my Mickey Mouse-Guitar (Valentine-red in real life) and Danny petting my stuffed tiger...
Sloan Snags a Silver
I want to congratulate my pal and Half-Tone mate, Michael Sloan, for winning a Silver Medal in sequential art for his full-length illustrated novel (without words), The Heresy of Professor Nimbus, from the Society of Illustrators. You couldn't find a nicer guy or more dedicated artist. Michael went...
Credit Where Credit is Due Dept.
Sometimes an image stops you in your tracks. I just got my New Yorker in the mail a moment ago. I couldn't not post the cover in light of Bush's recent announcement of his intention to send more US troops into battle, and with all that's been discussed here politically. The cover is by the great...
