"Whoa!" was all I could say when I walked into The Fantastical Worlds of Ray Harryhausen exhibit at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences back in 2012. One of my earliest recollections of his work is watching a Jason and the Argonauts and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad double feature with my Dad at the pre-revival Vista Theatre. I have been fascinated with his work ever since.
Harryhausen's incredible stop-motion animation and special effects set the bar so high, I don't think his work has been bested. Sure, we now have massive computer rendering farms and texture mapping so detailed you can see pores on blue skin. However, there is something special about watching real objects in motion that pixels on a screen have yet to capture.

I have a couple of pieces in the Occidental College / North East Los Angeles Bicycle Art Show. Info below:
The Occidental and NELA Bicycle Art Show
February 28 - March 15, 2013
Thursday February 28, 2013
6-9 PM | Open to the public
Weingart Art Gallery
1600 Campus Rd
Los Angeles, 90041
Exploring the world is one of the best ways of exploring the mind, and bicycling travels both terrains...
In an exploration of the rich connections between biking and art, and in an effort to bring together the cycling communities of NELA and Occidental College, the BICYCLE ART SHOW will be opening on February 28th at the Weingart Gallery, a two room gallery on the Occidental College campus in Eagle Rock.
A pre-show GROUP RIDE will meet at Campus Rd and Alumni Rd at 5:00, swing by the Bike Oven at 5:30, and end up at the gallery for the opening.
The opening will include live music, food and wine, and an interactive art-making project.
While many are aware of the practical, environmental, physical and emotional benefits cycling enjoys over other types of transportation, few are aware of how cycling has inspired and influenced contemporary art practices, particularly in northeast LA. This is a show of artwork that will bring these diverse practices together, focusing on bicycles, bicycle culture, and cycling-inspired art.
Riding a bicycle and the culture that surrounds it are particularly fertile grounds for creativity, and this will be an opportunity to display artwork that is deeply relevant to many of the issues that face our society and our city surrounding transportation, the environment, and the choice of how to live one’s life. Additionally, it will create a space that is shared by both members of the NELA arts and bicycle community and Occidental students, who might share support and encouragement in their artistic and cycling pursuits.
