Sundance Film Festival A-Z: Letter B

The Sundance Film Festival for 2013 began one week ago in Park City, Utah and this year the festival organizers teamed up with Todd Oldham. He created a product line to help raise funds for the Sundance Institute, which is a non-profit that pledges to give artists a forum to explore their projects. One of the items is a book which celebrates the people and films that have embodied the spirit of Sundance. 27 Illustrators were selected to create images - one for each letter and one special one for the cover (The press release says that we are World-Class). I chose letter B so I could do a drawing that featured Steve Buscemi, Blood Simple, Boys Don't Cry, and Big Night. The Timpano in the center signifies the latter film and there is a joke in there for those who know the climax of the Coen Brothers' first film...

I am very pleased to be a part of this beautiful board book. Thanks to all involved - especially you, Mr. Kozatek.
