Alright…let’s start this entry off with a Roadrunner/Wile E. Coyote short, easily one of my favourite duo’s in cartoons.
Now that your brain is thinking cartoons, I want to talk about the Art Gallery of Alberta’s Warner Bros. exhibit that opened up last week. While I personally have not had a chance to see the actual exhibit itself, some of the promotional pieces and events promoting the exhibit are definitely creating a lot of excitement and buzz.
AGA commissioned local illustrators Keith-yin Sun and Judi Chan to do a post card series, where they took classic Warner Bros. characters and gave them an awesome retro-minimalist spin. Check some of them out below…
If the beautiful postcard series and an art gallery exhibit about cartoons isn’t enough to entice you, how about a full blown opening gala? On July 10th, AGA will be hosting a Late Night Art Party, part of their Refinery party series. The event will feature performances from Alberta artists and DJs including interactive live drawings by local designer Sarah Jackson and a limited edition graphic novel penned by Josh Holinaty, an Edmonton illustrator. Sounds like it’s going to be a great time! Come hang out with Urban Jungle that night!
