Hidden Agenda

This one’s just for the Vancouverites – my good friend (and talented local illustrator) Ehren Salazar, is hosting a variety show called Hidden Agenda. Friday February 13th at The Waterfront Theatre (1412 Cartwright St. on Granville Island) – doors at 7:30pm – show at 8:00pm. There will be live music and a special encore screening of Animatron 2008 (a compilation of short animations)! Here’s a little message from Ehren not entirely related to Hidden Agenda, but not not related either:

Motion-control artist Bruce Shapiro’s “Sisyphus” is an incredible sand drawing machine that creates elaborate patterns using magnets (click here for previous post). While several installations have been set up in countries around the world, Shapiro is now working toward a version people can enjoy in their own homes! See more images and information about this Kickstarter below!
