Grim Sharks?

- To continue with yesterday’s posting of Grim Natwick‘s Cheerio commercial, this is the cycle of sharks snapping/chasing the girl. I don’t think any of the drawings are wholly Grim’s. The numbers on the drawings are done in Tissa David‘s handwriting, so Grim may have worked out the breakdown chart with her and asked her to animate the shark to his timing. Bits of each shark are definitely his: the darker lines – the nose on 21, the shark’s mouth and guitar on 22, and the face on 26.

(Click on any drawing to enlarge.)

- Tomorrow night the Museum of Modern Art is hosting a show featuring comedian and show biz personality An Evening with Eddie Lawrence.

Performer, writer, painter, and “Old Philosopher” Eddie Lawrence /strong> recalls his career on stage, screen, radio, and television, reminiscing about his relationships with the artists Fernand Léger and Henri Matisse, and media personalities like Major Bowes, Judy Holliday, and Johnny Carson.

He worked on countless Paramout cartoons as a story writer and voice actor. It sounds like it’s definitely worth a look.

- And speaking of MOMA, they now have on line an interview with Ralph Eggleston re the Pixar exhibit at the Museum.

    I don’t know what GRIM NATWICK’S SCRAPBOOK is. These are animation drawings I own.
