Following the heads up about the Alan Grant talk, more comic news: Thursday 24 January sees a screening at the Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop of two films, Malcy’s Horses and Gavin’s Feet, preceded by an interview with the films’ subject, Scottish cartoonist Malcy Duff.
One of Scotland’s best known experimental cartoonists, though perhaps without the same mass-audience appeal as Alan Grant, Duff has published a number of titles over the years including Black Gnome.
In Malcy’s Horses (which might also be going under the title Walking on Wet Tarmac according to director Ben Ewart-Dean’s website), Duff is filmed drawing all the horses in his head while in Gavin’s Feet he plays his dad planting in the garden. A live soundtrack will accompany the latter film, performed by Ali Robertson (USURPER) and Norman Shaw (nimrod33, NOB).
According to bugpowder.com, there will also be an exhibition of all the original artwork produced for the film for this one night only and all work will be for sale.
Venue: Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop
Date/Time: Thursday 24 January, from 7pm, admission FREE
