FINAL UPDATE: Here's the post on the ABC NEWS website, and here's Stef's post on his blog.
The interview looks great. Check out the video!
Another update: Stef is learning how actors feel when we're pre-empted: his segment will not be on ABC World News Wednesday 5/27. Maybe Thursday, 5/28. Fingers crossed.
Update: Stef's appearance on ABC has tenatively been rescheduled for Wednesday 5/27.
A lot of people around here are artists of one sort or another. It's why we live here. We can ply our trades. We can act, write, paint, draw, create music and do the things artists do (you know, like wear distressed clothing, wring our hands and drink coffee).
So it's no big deal for me to say I know an artist. Who doesn't? But I know a famous artist. Or I'm about to.
If you've been around this blog for a while you've occasionally seen my links to Stephane Kardos. (My apologies, Stef. How do you get an accent aigu into blogger?) Here's Stef outside his Altadena studio. Stef's from France by way of London but I'm sorry, they let him go and now he's ours. Sure, sure, he's known for his fluid sketch work. He's got that coveted Disney job, blah blah blah. Small potatoes. I think Stef's prices are about to go up because he's going to be on ABC World News with Charles Gibson this Monday at 6:30PM. The crew was at his place for five hours Friday, so there ought to be a good thirty or forty seconds' worth of material.
Stef is often inspired by a photograph on a local blog (the second iPhone painting was "after" one of mine).
Oh Laurie, I have something of yours. I think it might be valuable. It looks nice above my mantel, don't you think?
