Art for Lunch today was a Toronto animator Patrick Jenkins whom I am embarrassed to admit I had not heard of before. He does excellent animation using paint on glass techniques, top lit, with watercolour. His content for three of his films is based on a very surreal take on film noir with jazz and inexplicable mysteries, people being shot, and ghosts and spirits flying in and out of the scenes. Magical in both form and content. I told my animation students to come and am disappointed at their absences. I got a chance to talk with Patrick after his talk (I was late and wasn't sure what I missed so I held back asking stupid questions). He was really nice and very generous with sharing his techniques.
