Interview with the late NFB experimental animator Ryan Larkin! He was a fixture on the Main for decades. Living at the Old Brewery Mission, after panhandling on St-Laurent & Napoléon he would often wind down on the couch at S.W. Welch’s secondhand bookstore where I found him mourning the recent death of store mascot Rosie the Cat. He was the subject of CGI animator Christopher Landreth’s Oscar-winning short film Ryan where both interviewer & interviewee sprout Day-Glo Cronenbergian coral-reef tumors like mood rings. I asked Ryan to elaborate… The heading for this Motion Picture Purgatory which originally appeared in a 2005 issue of The Montreal Mirror was “Bitter-pill eye-candy!” As always; the original art’s for sale @ 100 bucks. More deets below or contact me for info. (To see image full-sized, click on it to open in a new window & use the magnify function).
