Weekend 601.1

Happy Easter!

Enjoying the home office and some downtime after work-related travel. I’m definitely playing catch up. My last post took me down a rabbit hole. It started with a scan of some artwork from a booklet that accompanied a vinyl imprint of Fantasia. The artist was Richmond Kelsey. He was an accomplished artist/teacher from Southern California who spent time in the 30s at the Walt Disney Studios working on Pinocchio and Dumbo. He served in the South Pacific in WWII. He also illustrated greeting cards, including one featuring the three wisemen.

A very relevant quote from Macrina Wiederkehr:

The poets and the saints, artists of all kinds, are ripe for visions because they are always hungry. They are hungry for truth. Their entire beings are filled with hunger, hunger to know, to understand, to create. They are hungry to see to the depths of things. They are not satisfied with our ordinary dim way of seeing.

The scan is from The Art of Miyazaki’s Spirited Away.
