A very talented animator/artist friend of mine called Andrs Barrientos whom I met while at an animation festival in Zagreb in 2006, recently sent me one of his art works. It was painted for an article in SOHO Magazine, written by well known Peruvian journalist Jaime Bayly.
I was really chuffed to hear that part of the inspiration for the piece was drawn from the scene in The Cat Piano where one cat stabs another in cold blood in a dark alleyway. It’s a very cool thing when a friend and artist you admire is inspired by something that you have done, and gave me a real buzz. If you want to see more of Andres’ work, have a look at his blog.
