THE HISTORY OF LOVE - ANIMATION

As some of you may know, I've been lucky enough to have published a book of the drawings that I (and Ewan!) made for the film. It actually took me along time and many drawings in many styles to develop the "history of sadness" that's featured in the film, and to just figure out the way the character Oliver should draw. The many styles and subjects that didn't end up in the edit went up to drawing heaven - and into this book. For the book I also did a "history of love" (always trying to lean towards the positive) which features the troubled romantic life of a neanderthal named Webster (OK, maybe it's not so positive). Big ups to my comrade and new father Aaron Beckum who gave some animated life to the drawings.
