Reasons you should read John K's blog

If you’re an artist of any kind, I sincerely believe you should read John K’s blog.
I can’t believe how much useful information is stored there for anyone interested in anything creative.

For those who aren’t aware, John Kricfalusi is the creative wonder behind Ren and Stimpy and the Spumco Empire. Completely inspiring and entirely down-to-earth, John will give you theories and tutorials, advice and opinions and just a down right pleasant read.

John’s blog from time to time will feature projects he is working on, to see the roughing out of something that will turn out much bigger is really rewarding and a great demonstration of how a piece is born.

Through the site you might also stumble upon blogs by Katie Rice, Kali Fontecchio and Marlo Meekins, (all of whose work is great motivation to keep drawing), while in keeping with the Spumco style also bring along a whole new interpretation.

In short, read it….you will learn things!

dreams and memories.....

my home town- taken by me 2008



It is intensely interesting for me to see an adult interpreting experiences from their childhood with a real sense of nostalgia.


Young-at-heart Michel Gondry is known for placing elements of himself in his films, he often relates his dream as a child in which his hands would grow to an immense size, having trouble being convinced when he woke that his hands were of normal proportions.

It 's obvious that this dream really affected him featuring in a film-clip Gondry did for the Foo Fighters’ “Everlong” and re-appearing in his 2006 film “The Science of Sleep”.


Recently , I went to see "Be Kind Rewind" the new movie from Michel Gondry. The characters portray two, you might say 'immature', video store clerks who end up erasing all the video tapes on their shelves, (due to Jack Black's magnetised head of course!). The only way to solve this problem is for the boys to re-record all the movies using themselves as the stars.

To me, the movie is totally endearing, I feel like a kid watching my friends get themselves out of a sticky situation.


I am hoping there is someone reading who would like to contribute, and with your permission I would love to share your work on this blog (with full credit to you of course). Your work might inspire others! give it a go!
