John and Faith Hubley

Michael Sporn just wrote a wonderful post about Moonbird, the 1959 Academy Award winning short by the Hubleys. He’s posted a lot of beautiful stills as well as good information regarding techniques, sound, paints, etc. Definitely take a look!

And if you’re not familiar with the film:

Brendan Wenzel


Brendan Wenzel has added many new animals to his website since the last time I posted. One of his prints is also featured on The Working Proof; it sells for $30 and %15 of the profits go to the Jane Goodall Institute.



I didn’t expect to be so affected by September 11th today. I’ve written this post several times, but I’m at a loss for words to say much of anything. Instead I want to share this speech made by Jon Stewart ten years ago – Jon at his most honest. Perhaps you like his show, perhaps you don’t, but I recommend the clip all the same.

Better quality can be found on the Daily Show website.

Shayna Leib


Glass sculptures by Shayna Leib. To create each sculpture, Leib pulls over a mile of thin glass and cuts it into tens of thousands of pieces. Check out the process here.

Tree of Life Poster

Beautiful poster available at Degree. (In no way associated with the film, although both are wonderful.)

Ronald Searle

“Morbid Anatomies”  by Ronald Searle. Note the artist’s ink-pen shoes up top!

Searle is one of my very favorites; I’ve posted about him before, and in all likelihood I’ll be posting about him again soon.

Because it’s raining in New York, and this is too sweet to go unposted:

“Dedicated keepers at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s Nairobi Elephant Nursery in Kenya protect baby Shukuru from the cold and rain, and the risk of pneumonia, with a custom-made raincoat.
