    Oh wow, I like these! I love looking at people’s sketchbooks.

  • Stephan

    Wow, number 4 is awesome!

  • Corina

    LOVE these. So talented. The colours, layers and textures are great. That second one looks like John Waters

    in the larger portraits, the use of variously colored inks adds more dimension and an other-worldly quality to Hendon’s already grotesquely whimsical illustrations. I’d love to see the rest of this sketchy!

    Really nice. Awesome talent. I like the dude with the hat in the first one. All look pretty awesome though. :)

    Hey, i like your work…my friend jamie just sent me a link. I feel we have similar styles/tastes in production methods. If you are on normal facebook (i don’t understand what this one is…never seen it before) we should be friends (haha sounds rather lame). If you are down to do small art shows for a scene that appreciates good work, let me know. Always room for one more, as they say.

      I would be very interested in doing a show together. Email me anytime. Where can I see your work?

    Fabulous sketches. Maria in the red checked blouse would be an excellent addition. Will Emily love it?

The Hateful Eight Roadshow


Director Quentin Tarantino and cinematographer Bob Richardson wanted their latest film, The Hateful Eight, to be the eleventh film ever to be shot in Ultra Panavision (as wide as widescreen gets) and with the help of the film company they were able to pull it off.

The Hateful Eight will be projected in 70mm in select theatres on Christmas day as a good old fashioned roadshow, meaning it will feature an overture, intermission, playbill, and extra footage!

Watch the featurette below and start the countdown.

This Pop-Up Book Folds into a Functioning Camera!


After numerous prototypes, Kelli Anderson perfected a sequence of cuts and folds that could turn an ordinary piece of paper into a fully functional camera. The Book is a Camera is the ultimate pop-up experience: a book that not only explains how cameras work but actually becomes one!

The coolest part is you can support Kelli and purchase the book here but she specifically designed her pinhole camera under a Creative Commons share-alike license so you can also download the template yourself, build it, examine it, and use the knowledge to even make your own variant!

Kelli and I both spoke at Blend here in Vancouver and her talk was one of my favourites. She spoke about a wide variety of her past work including her counterfeit New York Times newspaper (she produced hundreds of thousands of copies and distributed it on the streets of New York), her amazing stop-motion tribute to the Eameses’ iconic film “Power of Ten” using images sourced from Google Images, and her paper record player/wedding invitations.

She’s the kinda person it’s almost hard to write about because she’s doing so many wildly different things. She’s currently working on a music video so stayed tuned for that!

More images and a video of her book/camera below!
