Now then hombres and senoras_______
Have had a very successful preview of my recent drawings in Liverpool last Thursday evening.
Please check out my facebook page (and "Like" it if you please) for a few shots of the show and some close-ups of some of the pieces on display:

Also, check out my blog:

ps I am a painter not a photographer so I apologise in advance for lens distortion (but I hope I have successfully communicated the atmosphere in the space...Just imagine Philip Glass, Morricone and Popol Vuh floating around and you're almost there!)

For any interested in attending the show:
It runs Thurs-Sun 11am-6pm until Sunday June 9th 2013.
Further details here:

PLENTY TO LOOK AT, ESPECIALLY FOR FANS OF FAFDM!!!

Muchas gracias!
Yours,

For a Few Dollars More / "For a few LIKES more"
« on: April 04, 2013, 11:22:34 PM »
Hombres and Senoras______

I would like to humbly request if as many of you who like my paintings and drawings would consider "liking" my 2 facebook pages to help me get a bit more exposure and more "likes". I have posted the links to both pages at the bottom of this post.

I have followers of my practice stretching from the UK across the pond to The States, over to India and even someone who runs a ranch in Costa Rica! Pretty much everywhere in between as well, but both pages seem to have stalled around the 60-followers mark.

I admit I myself am something of a facebook-skeptic but it, like Twitter, is a useful and generally toll-free way of reaching and expanding an audience (which an artist, of course, relies on)

Also if any of you happen to be bloggers, perhaps you could follow mine? The link of which can also be found below.
Again this will help me reach as many people as possible.

I have my first solo exhibition coming up in Liverpool starting May 10th so I'd like as many people as possible to be aware of it, and to attend.

Muchas gracias in advance to anyone who can help me with this.

Hasta luego...Amigos and Amigas!

Sergio Leone News / NEW ARTWORK AND UPCOMING EXHIBITION
« on: February 10, 2013, 07:48:30 AM »
It's all been quiet on the North-Western front.
I have an exhibition opening in Liverpool, UK during May this year.
The exhibition will consist of 30 (possibly 31) brand-new drawings which I have been working on since November last year.
I have 21 in the bag with a further 10 to finish.

The blog I have published http://somethingtodowithdeath.tumblr.com/ will include updates on new work, events and exhibitions.
Please follow if you are that way inclined....

For now here is a preview of "April Skies":

Feedback is, as always, welcome.


Cheers!

For a Few Dollars More / R.I.P. Frank Brana 1934-2012
« on: February 18, 2012, 02:29:05 PM »
This may have already been posted but sadly Spanish character actor Frank Brana passed away earlier this week.
Wikipedia tells that he featured in over 200 films!
Another of Indio's crew gone....not sure how many are still with us.

Hombres and Senoras,
If any of you happen to be in the Northwest of England, specifically in the fine city of Liverpool at some point between now and March 2012, head down to "Que Pasa Cantina" bar.....

I have several paintings on display there, the beer is cold and their Mexican food ain't half bad as well!

Que Pasa Cantina

Gracias!

For a Few Dollars More / Fight the good fight....
« on: May 07, 2011, 01:39:18 PM »
Hombres & Senoritas_______
I found this website setup to bring attention to the many cuts in FAFDM.

http://www.forafewdollarsmore.net/

Quite an in-depth site: he's even collated the various releases over the years and given the pros and cons of each one (apparently the Italian dvd IS uncut but, sod's law, only available with Italian dub)
Also there's a message board.
He's hoping to get a lot of signatures via the site and facebook, in order to eventually petition the powers that be to finally release what I know we all agree is a long overdue complete movie.
It may not go anywhere but I'm spreading the word via facebook anyhow to get as many as possible to "like" the page (even to those who aren't interested in the film)
So may I suggest we all join the fight?

Couldnt hurt could it?

Chuncho.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Jill and Frank
« on: May 06, 2011, 10:58:15 AM »
After reading the thread regarding the marriage of McBain and Jill, I remembered that there's a scene I don't understand or at least an aspect of it seems very unclear to me:

I always wondered about Jill's rolling around with Frank in the cave.

she becomes very compliant, even eager and it never sat right with me, didnt make sense.
I always thought it was probably just to "save her own skin" as Frank puts it. But she doesnt put up much struggle and she even smiles to herself when he's undressing her.

Surely with her back turned to him at this point she would at least take the opportunity to show her displeasure or something? If there is any!!!

I don't know.
Have I missed something??

Once Upon A Time In The West / Cheyenne breakout
« on: May 04, 2011, 12:07:34 PM »
Amigos and Senoritas___________
I think this may have been discussed or resolved previously but.....

At what point did Cheyenne get shot?

Was it:
a.) as his hombres broke him out of the train en route to Yuma jail? (in which case, does that mean that Morton's train was transporting him?)
or b.) after being rescued from a different train. After which him and his gang head to Morton's (we see his gang dead outside Morton's de-railed choo-choo, Aldo Sambrell amongst them.)

This also makes me wonder if there were further scenes cut from this film along with the Harmonica beating.
I actually like it the way the film's edited even if that is the case, every time I watch this or any other Leone film I notice something else and/or ask another question of it....the magic of cinema O0

Anyway....any thoughts???

Hombres & Senoritas____________
finally my website is up and running!

www.somethingtodowithdeath.com

the title will give you a hint of what they're inspired by:
I've loved Leone's films since I was a kid so it's no surprise that they continue to fire the furnaces to this day.
Check 'em out, hope you like 'em!

Gracias!

Off-Topic Discussion / Unknown film....
« on: August 31, 2010, 07:14:54 AM »
Amigos_____
I saw a Western (most probably a Euro one due to the violence) years ago.
When I say years, I mean when i was about 12 so thats about 23 years back.
No idea what its called.
No idea who was (or is) in it!
All I remember is one scene, and as the scene stuck with me all this time I've often wondered if the rest of the film would have been as powerful.
The scene, as far as I can remember, follows thus:
A muddy street, a man tied hand and foot to a cross (an X-shaped one) whilst a crowd of onlookers observe.
He may have been getting flogged but not sure. But I do remember that the crowd whistle rhythmically and in unison and he gets shot.
I remember it being quite visceral, he hangs limply half-on the cross. There's blood I think.
Any ideas??
