Being ever the humble servant of the arts, I like to make an effort from time to time to meet and work with new artists. So much time devoted to the show relates to video editing, so its nice to come out in person and spend some time working with an artist. An artist with this kind of talent that should not be ignored!

Mr. Sean Little was kind enough to engage your humble host in a quest to complete some art pieces.

We hope to debut some of his new pieces at one of the events we are planning in 2009. The SEA SHOW plans to provide ongoing assistance to this artist in the grant application process in so that he can finish some pieces in preparation for a joint show this coming year with other SEA SHOW artists.

The addition of a floating mount, fabric backing, and the addition of a frame lends a weight to these works that makes them all the more stirring.

The internet and changes in media have opened a lot of doors for alternative forms of media. We can look forward to some more interesting inroads by artists into 2d and 3d animtion if the first episode of Murakami’s is any indicator. In my alerts I came across some comments in the art websites about the sale of Loius Vuitton bags he designed at his art opening.

The art community of Los Angeles has pretty strong feelings about MOCA, which is safe thanks to a philanthropic bailout – but many are happy that the artist will be paying taxes and creating jobs when his animation studio opens.

While I think there are a ton of overlooked animators out there, there is a chance for you to see some animated art. Interestingly, the show I’m sure consists of many artists who work with and know one another so its interesting to see the individual work, but also the work in the context of its influences and these artists acquaintance with one another.I had a love affair with the impressionists then later Picasso when I would check out library books after high school.

It was fun to read about these artists with crazy ideas that were unaccepted and broke but they did anything to go for it! I see a similar picture here. Seattle was awesome when I got here and its spirit is still strong, and it had a lot of ties its sister city in the northwest, Portland.

The December opening at Art not TV gives working animators an opportunity to show us what they can do with the talent they have when they’re not trying to get paid to be artists.

Cartoon artists and animators have some very colorful imaginations, and its really cool seeing abstract concepts from artists like Richard Mather come to life with sound and movement. Its great to make a living as an artist, but its nice to be just an artist too.
