Bye Bye Unkle Ken
Ken Russell just passed away at 84. One of my personal favorite directors -I had just finished watching a number of his early films that he directed for the BBC. He re-imagined the Hollywood biopic. Nobody else depicted the triumphs and failures of the creative artist, with the rhapsodic splendor, squalidness and sadness quite the way he did. And he was often very funny.
Here's a 2009 drawing from my ballpoint notebook .
