First of the month: 1 August 2012

I love this page of dad's handwritten ideas & doodles for short animation sequences (circa 1969), some of which made it into Monty Python's Flying Circus:

 ... and here's some close-ups of this page & another:

  2. Great blog, please keep it up. I love your dad's works. I had the great pleasure to meet him here in Toronto a couple of years ago. And I've been very lucky to get a couple of quick sketches from him. Feel free to send me a quick note if you'd like me to send you a scan.

  3. Enjoying all the posts, what next? I have always loved your dads work, from an early age it has inspired me to plough my own furow . It must be an amazing thing to be able to do, a treasure trove of stuff. i look forward to more insights into a mad and crazy world.

  5. thank you so much for doing all this work for us... your dad´s work means the world to thousands of people (specially to me) and I really love to know that my son one day will have the chance to be able to click on this page and see all his work organized!!!!! <3

  6. Thank you so much for your efforts! I'm a fan of your father since my childhood. I remember my dad showing me Monty Python when i was about 5. I couldn't understand a word back then (i'm swiss) but i always just loved the animations! So i fast forwarded the VHS Cassettes to the cartoons. I haven't seen anything like it since. My dad was an animator and so i began making little cut out animations with his camera myself. I always admired Terry's drawing style and discovered Harvey Kurtzman's art through him which i just love. I'd very much love to see a book like "The Art of Terry Gilliam" full of his sketches and drawings!
