Michael Hussar new sketches!

Holiday weekend is deserving of a special treat and I suspect it’s a Memorial Day weekend Hussar fix you’ve been needing! To kick it off I present you with Michael Hussar’s 4th installment for Sketch Theatre, a brilliant session with a soundtrack selected by Hussar himself, the group is Mozart Khadaffi and it’s a brilliant accompaniment. To complete your lust for more Mr Hussar is hosting a show for ONE NIGHT ONLY of his personal sketches tomorrow in Pasadena! It’s a very rare occasion to see Michael’s sketches and this event is free for all to attend, this is going to be a killer show … I recommend getting there early!

Wow. it's Jim Smith!

If you don’t know Jim, you only “think” you don’t know Jim. You know him, back in the day he, along with the wonderful John Kricfalusi created a seminal cartoon show called Ren & Stimpy … Oh dang!

When I think of what could have happened to our world without the impact of Ren & Stimpy crashing into our toon hungry lives back in the day when “TV Land” was barren it makes me shudder. Jim’s contributed so much to shaping our current landscape in the world of comics, animation and cartoon style. Now get a load of what I believe is his first video venture, we’ll get to watch him draw … sweet!! I was super stoked upon my visit with Jim to discover that he is also a musician and his composition “Dog Pound Hop” is a well known tune that’s used as the opening number for the original Ren & Stimpy series … yep, that’s Jim playing some mean guitar! So now that you’ve been re-acquainted with him … please enjoy Jim Smith.

New Chet Zar!

I missed Chet Zar and I bet you did too!

He is one of the coolest and most down to earth guys ever, and consistently brings along a good dose of creepy imagery. Just a few weeks back we did a little session and this is his latest contribution to ST, Chet Zar 05 …  if you really like it, the original is amazingly still available in the Gnomon Gallery store (why?!?!?) maybe no one knew it was recently added … well secret is out, you can own this awesome sketch, go here!

Chet Zar 05
Music is provided by LA’s Black Math Horseman (singer/bassist Sera Timms actually concept designed the look of the Sketch Theatre website) that means not only is she in an awesome band that just released their first record, she also directs music videos, is a killer designer and ST’s surrogate momma, soooo how cool is Sera? VERY.




Event Photos!

“The Art of Sketch Theatre” at the Gnomon Gallery is up for viewing through May 1st 2009. Our opening night reception last Saturday was ridiculously fun, loud, fueled with cocktails, brilliantly costumed models and packed so full of talented and crazy people that you couldn’t roll a marble through the room without hitting one (seriously).

Greg 'Craola' Simkins

LA has been very good to Sketch Theatre, our little metropolis never fails to produce another great talent to showcase for you all.

Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins is a brilliant painter and one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. His career has taken him from graffiti artist street punk to video game design and now onto a full time career with his paint brush and twisted visual mind! His first installment for Sketch Theatre is no exception, I hope to film some more with him very soon.

Gris Grimly on ST

Once in a while you meet someone that truly stands out in class of their very own. Such is the case with Gris Grimly. I enjoyed working with Gris, creating his sketch videos really gave me a sense of his meticulous nature, every line falls perfectly into place.  Gris also took careful consideration into personally selecting each piece of music for his videos, his choices are haunting and lovely to say the very least.

Here is the debut of the first of four sketches created for Sketch Theatre, the next 3 will follow shortly! Music by Antony and the Johnsons.
