Storyboard and details here


  1. Wow! Amazing work, and quite a young artist. I enjoyed the video more on his website. Thanks for the intro, Marly!

  2. This is amazing! I have always appreciated this painting, but now even more.

  3. I've just started looking at the website and the storyboard and details... Yes, it's so wonderful to see--I'd like to see the whole animation.


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
