Our friend Teppei made an animated film about the serial killer Joe Ball. Lots of the buds contributed their voices. It turned out great!

Yours truly gets hit in the face by a glass bottle.

Jo Mora

Posted in Uncategorized by sunnydownsnuff on January 4, 2012

I just discovered the art of Jo Mora and have been enjoying it a great deal. The Byrds used his work from a 1932 poster for their album “Sweetheart of the Rodeo”. Click on the images for greater detail.

I especially like the maps that he made!
