If you haven’t had a chance to see Lorenzo Petrantoni’s exhibit in Dumbo you have until this Saturday. And if you miss it, we’ll be featuring Lorenzo in the next issue of Creative Quarterly, Issue 28. And you’ll want to take a look at this wonderful short film on how Lorenzo puts together his collages.

Tomi Ungerer rose to prominence in the late 1950s as the creator of acclaimed children’s books—”I dare say, no one was as original,” Maurice Sendak once ventured.
Ungerer’s creativity also encompassed iconic 60s protest posters and lavish books of erotica; but when his work was banned, he risked fading into obscurity. This film performs a laudable act of rediscovery by capturing his incredible personality on camera and bringing his artwork to life through enchanting animated sequences.
Sessions for Portfolio Reviews with Charles Hively are all booked. However, after the New Year we will re-open the studio for more portfolio reviews. We’ll make announcements about the new dates later this year.
