Leonard Nimoy 1931 - 2015

Leonard Nimoy passed away today. As probably everyone knows, he was the original Spock of Star Trek. He was a great actor, and he seemed like a great person. He'd recently been having health problems from what I remember reading. He was a very wise and talented person. He'll always be remembered, and he'll be greatly missed.

Monty Python's Official Site

Monty Python has a new official site at www.montypython.com. It's got a cool design featuring the art of Python Terry Gilliam. It's got various pages including a media page, shop page, and a fan club page. It's a great site!

Terry Gilliam's Official Web Site

Besides the blog from Terry Gilliam's daughter I mentioned in the previous blog post, Terry has an official site at http://terrygilliamweb.com/. There's not a lot on there right now. There are things like one thing about his film Zero Theorem. I'd like to see more of his cartoon work. I like his style. I like how his art, like Monty Python itself, can be funny and unpredictable. He does some great work!

Holly Gilliam's Blog Devoted To Her Father, Terry Gilliam

Apparently, Monty Python's Terry Gilliam has a daughter named Holly. And apparently, she started a blog to post about his art and things like that. I saw a cartoon Terry posted on his Facebook fan page, and I decided to look up his art. I found said blog, and there looks to be some interesting things on it. From what I gather, it's a blog to show his art, things from his acting, directing, etc. It looks cool. If you're a fan of Terry Gilliam, whether as a member of Monty Python, as a cartoonist, or as a director, you may want to check out that blog, which by the way is titled ""Discovering Dad" aka delving into Terry Gilliam's personal archive."

Cupid

Image
I drew this last night, the night of Valentine's Day. I thought about redrawing it before posting it, because I realized I didn't draw Cupid's hands in a position to actually fire an arrow. But, I decided to go ahead and blog it. It would have been a fitting thing to blog yesterday if I'd drawn it sooner. All in all, I think it looks pretty good.

Monty Python Artwork

Image
This is an unfinished Monty Python artwork of mine. It's sort of in a cartoon style. I thought this would be a fitting artwork to post. I got Monty Python Live (Mostly) - One Down, Five to Go on Bluray earlier this week. I watched it and it was great! It's a live show with clips from the TV show, Monty Python's Flying Circus, and the movies. It consists of all or mostly old sketches, like a greatest hits show. The show debuted last year, and is considered their final farewell performance. It was funny how John Cleese and Terry Gilliam had facial hair and didn't shave for the show, considering that they'd be playing women (Terry Gilliam at least played himself in drag). It's sad that it was their final performance, but I figure it's just the beginning for me. I just started really getting into Monty Python in 2013. I had seen a reunion special some years before, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail in English 12 class in high school.

I watched Monty Python&…

Laura Vandervoort As Kara

Image
Here's an old line drawing I did of Laura Vandervoort as Kara. She played Kara on Smallville. I drew this on paper and scanned it. Than I basically tinted it in a paint shop program I have. The paint shop program I have is JASC Paint Shop Pro. It's an old program but it still works really well for my art. I have unintentionally been going with a theme for my blog posts lately, the theme being women. But it's a good thing I have. I think it's cool.

Maria Menounos

Image
Here's another old picture I drew. This is of Maria Menounos. I drew it on paper and then scanned it and colored it in a paint shop program I have. Maria Menounos seems like a cool woman. This is one of my artworks that was the earliest I digitally colored using my Wacom tablet. I think it turned out pretty well. I hope everyone has a great week!

Heather Thomas

Image
This is a picture I drew some years ago of Heather Thomas. Heather Thomas starred in an 1980s TV show titled The Fall Guy. The show was about a trio of stunt people who were also bounty hunters. Lee Majors and Douglas Barr also starred. At one point, Night Court's Markie Post starred on the show. The Fall Guy was a great show!

Sadness

Image
This is a picture I drew some time ago. Honestly, I was going to scan something, but I didn't want to mess with a scanner. I had this saved away so I decided to post it instead.

Monty Python's Flying Circus, Series 1 - Opening Title Animation

Image
Terry Gilliam has done some very creative and genius animations for Monty Python. He was also a member who did acting on the show and in the movies and such. I think his animations are inspiring. He's also done non-animated art in the unique style he used on Monty Python's Flying Circus. I think his art is brilliant.
