Wow! What a week, kicked it off in Paris visiting my girlfriend, then we had the epic lunch with Oscar Grillo & Uli, & then rounded things off with the Art of Pixar Exhibition followed by a retrospective of Pixar shorts including the British premiere of 'ONE MAN BAND'. Firstly here are the pics I made last weekend in Paris.
'ASTERIX & THE VIKINGS' is released in France next week & Disney have given it a little 'friendly' competition by releasing 'THE WILD' on the same day!
Above - some interesting sights & graphics on the streets of Paris.
MUSEE PICASSO - the main exhibition was 'Picasso & Dora Maar'. There was also a 'Making of Guernica' show too.
'ESPACE SALVADOR DALI' in Montmatre is a subterranean museum worthy of the surrealist maestro.
This tribute to Delacroix is in the Jardin luxembourg.
200 YEARS OF FRENCH DRAWING at the Musee Jacquemart Andre.
One of the most beautiful & elegant galleries I've been to.
The fantastic drawing featured on the poster is by Boucher.
This hyena was drawn from the exhibition catalogue while we were there. The real thing is meticulously rendered. Gorgeous!
This is Fremiet's sculpture outside the Musee D'Orsay that I photographed on my last trip.
We saw Ken Chaige's dazzling new film 'WU JI'. It was screened in Chinese with French subtitles so I didn't know what the hell was going on but it looked damn nice! In English speaking territories this film is called 'THE PROMISE'.
Finally got hold of the latest SKYDOLL book.
