Hey everyone. Hope you’re doing great. This week, since I have been busy writing and editing previous and newer projects that I cannot share here just yet, I decided to take a break from writing and make some visual stuff. Here are a few drawings/sketches/collages I made last night, today, (and recently), mostly haphazardly.
No words, more pictures, by me. Till next week!
Films I’ve Watched Recently
Be Kind Rewind
by Michel Gondry
Were y’all aware that a film by Michel Gondry featuring yasiin bey, Jack Black, and Danny Glover existed?? This film existed in some buried part of my subconscious as I recall seeing it as a kid but for some weird reason it always felt a bit unreal and now I realize why. Gondry’s direction and the film worlds he creates are always just a bit unreal, from Jerry, played by Jack Black, becoming magnetic, to the meta nature of the film itself, having them create makeshift film studio sets on a film set. The visuals are incredible in this, soundtrack is wonky as my friend H put it, and the writing and dialogue is just flatout hilarious and genius. It really is a wholesome movie, I personally found it entertaining from beginning to end. There were no slow parts that drag out, the pacing was almost perfect. A great film. Give it a watch if you want to watch something funny and fun and wholesome. ALSO! I realize there might be a strong chance that The Last Black Man in San Francisco was inspired by this story. If you watched it and you watch this, you’ll see what I mean!

I know, probably should have seen this long ago. But after watching it, I really don’t have much to say except that sometimes… I really dislike tech niggas lmao.
