The First Circus 1921

Thanks, Decaying Hollywood Mansions on FB
This is a great early animation from 1921, don't you think?
I remember taking film and animation classes back in art school.
Some of my favorite times- staying up all night painting animation cells.

Hey- they call this Cyber Monday, so
be sure to check out my new print editions for the holidays, if
you haven't already!

Combo Waltz performed by the Hokum Scorchers

Here is one of our Hokum Scorcher's recordings called Combo Waltz. I am playing the washboard and cups and Lou Reimuller is playing the National guitar, harmonica and kazoo. This song is based on a Memphis Jugband song from the late 20s, early 30s.

Picture of the Day: Cat with Crown by Ruth Farrall

Hanging in my kitchen: a wonderful print of an original scratchboard drawing of a cat with a crown by my dear friend, artist Ruth Farrall. Ruth, you are the best. This cat says it all. Look at those eyes.
