I am working on a new, very detailed font this week. The drawing part is easy and fun. The technical part is... repetitious at best. So I have been watching some documentaries on my computer as I merrily work.
These 2 were interesting...
Herb & Dorothy 2008NR 87 minutes Chronicling the story of unlikely art collectors Herb Vogel and Dorothy Vogel, filmmaker Megumi Sasaki demonstrates that it's not necessary to be wealthy in order to build a significant collection in this fascinating documentary. A postal clerk and a librarian, the Vogels share a passion for art, which they pursued over decades, becoming two of the most important collectors of minimalist and conceptual art with more than 4,000 pieces.
Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock? 2006 PG-13 74 minutes When trailer park resident Teri Horton bought a painting for five bucks, little did she know it could be a genuine Jackson Pollock worth millions. This film documents her dealings with the art world's elitist establishment to authenticate the piece. Throughout the brash woman's 15-year endeavor to validate the painting, the clash between stuffy art dealers and the cussin', beer-drinkin' Horton is funny, eye-opening and utterly unforgettable.
