The Terry Gilliam Archive

ZOMG! Terry Gilliams Tochter Holly sortiert seit Ende letzten Jahres das Archiv ihres Vaters, fotografiert und scannt die Perlen daraus und hat jetzt ein Blog eröffnet, auf dem sie die besten Sachen posten will! Holy Grenade in a Chicken Basket! Da gibt's leider noch extrem wenig zu sehen, aber das Blog ist selbstredend umgehend in meinen Feedreader gewandert und wenn die Dame die Entwürfe zum Black Beast of Aauuugh postet, sterbe ich auf der Stelle an einer Herzattacke. Awesome!

In October 2011 I took on the mamouth task of organising my father's archive - all his work from pre-Python days, as a cartoonist, photojournalist & assistnat editor for Help! magazine, through all his original artwork and cut-outs for Python animation, posters, logos and generally everything Python, to his storyboards, designs and sketches for his feature films and other non-film related projects (including his opera of "Faust" and that infamous Nike commercial). Why!? Because I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by my father's amazing work all my life and I think it should be seen by everyone so I am organising the archive so it can eventually be put in a book and an exhibition. Along the (dusty) way I have uncovered absolute gems. I have set up this blog to share my journey and some of the "gems" I find along the way... Enjoy.
