Assignment for class! We were to choose out favorite watercolor artist and try to reproduce one of their pieces to better understand watercolor and how to use them. I chose the amazing Thoman Romain (here is his twitter! He is the guy who does illustrations of his son’s drawings and worked on Oban: Star Racers back in the day!) The original is on the right and my rendition is on the left! I dont normally work with traditional paints due to lack of practice but I really enjoyed this!

‘Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town’ to Premiere at the LA Film Festival

Lots of recent news for Mackenzie’s projects! Her film Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town will be premiering at the LA Film Festival in June according to the LA Times. Mackenzie is making her debut as producer in this film along with starring in the lead role.

Continuing the festival’s recent commitment to diversity, 42% of the films are directed by women and 40% by people of color. The LA Film Festival, produced by Film Independent, takes place June 14 to 22 and is headquartered at the Arclight Culver City with additional events in other venues around the city.

The U.S. fiction competition will give audiences more familiar faces than in the last few years of the festival. Christian Papierniak’s “Izzy Gets the … Across Town” features Mackenzie Davis, Lakeith Stanfield and Carrie Coon. Vincent Grashaw’s “And Then I Go” has a cast including Melanie Lynskey, Justin Long and Royalty Hightower. Camille Thoman’s “Never Here” features Mireille Enos and Sam Shepard.

Der Strandkorb (literally beach basket) is a chair designed to provide comfort and protection from sun, wind, and sand on German beaches. They’re used on the North Sea and Baltic Sea coast and can be rented. The Strandkorb is said to have been invented in 1882 by basketmaker Wilhelm Bartelmann in Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern on request of a tourist from Warnemünde. In 1883, they were first announced as rentals. The first models were single seaters and appeared quickly elsewhere on the German coast. Today’s models are mostly two seaters with tiltable tops, some allowing people to lie down completely. They have footrests and tables for food or drinks, storage space, rain proof covers, and sunshades. Thomas Mann refers to them in his 1901 novel Buddenbrooks, setting the context in the 1840s on the beach at Travemünde.

Red Dragon, chapter 2:

He would try to sleep. His mind was a busy rooming house with arguments all around him, and they were fighting somewhere down the hall. He was numb and empty and he drank two fingers of whiskey before he lay down.
