I LOVE film and tv. Graduated from film school in Philly but I've been heading back to my drawing roots. I'm an artist (animator, storyboard artist, illustrator). Raised in an environment where art is important, so its important for someone else to like art as well
I both need to be outside doing something, even just walking aimlessly, while simultaneously just wanting to stay inside. I skate, bike, and skimboard. A lot of time is also spent in record and book stores.
I'm a comedy nerd. A vinyl freak. And a comic geek.
And I own a rabbit.
I'm a WHOLE lot sillier than my profile shows. I vary between being really shy and extremely outgoing
But other than the dogs, I'm just trying to figure out how to get by as an illustrator. Honestly, I can't keep my foot down on something; this summer I've been ensconced in drawing political cartoons, last year I wrote and illustrated a children's book (it never went anywhere). I just love to draw! And I have so much I want to do.
And if you reeeeallly feel inclined, check my work: www.chuckkaslow.wix.com/kaslowcreates (yea, I know, its long. I gotta change that. Eventually. And update it.)
Creating little absurd illustrations.
I've read Infinite Jest
Movies- Some of my top films are Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Robin Hood (Disney all day!), Big Lebowski, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (I always cry, one of my teachers even announced that to a room of 60 people), Where the Wild Things Are (hits me where I live), Clockwork Orange, Ghostbusters, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Dark Knight trilogy, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Tarantino's entire filmography, and many, SO many more. I could talk all day; B-movies, giant monster movies, 70s cinema.
TV- Community (still waiting on that movie), 30 Rock, SNL, Doctor Who, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Drunk History, Bojack Horseman, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Flash, Portlandia, Black Mirror, Arrested Development, Twilight Zone, Bob's Burgers, Archer, Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Music- An eclectic mix, my record collection presents a better idea. Regardless, The Beatles, The Roots, Courtney Barnett, The Clash, Miles Davis, Dinosaur Jr, Radiohead, Lake Street Dive, The Strokes, Creedence Clearwater, Gorillaz, Matt & Kim, Beastie Boys, The Shins, Childish Gambino, Sonic Youth, Band of Horses, Black Keys. A lot of soundtracks and experimental music. Majorly into Jazz (cool, bebop, dixieland, big band). And the Stranger Things soundtrack of course.
I have an always growing vinyl collection; LOVE my records.
I listen to the Marc Maron WTF podcast a lot; I find the conversations with certain people to be both really helpful personally and stimulating.
a pad and pencils/pens
my always trusty skateboard
It says six but I don't care:
Converse Chuck Taylor's
Also, why aren't all these ppl on the street at work. I work outside all day, but why are all these ppl walking around like they don't have jobs (but have enough money to not care)
Also, why am I back on this damned site again (again). I mean I know why, I'm talking existentially.
And if you have more to say than just 'hi'/'how was your day'/'I think your bunny is cute'; seriously, that's a lame conversation starter & I probs won't respond. Please make an effort.
