There’s a new documentary screening at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) about French graphic artist, Tomi Ungerer (best known to movie poster fans for his Dr. Strangelove one-sheet), that’s aptly titled, Far Out Isn’t Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story.
WARNING: The trailer below isn’t for the easily offended as it features Ungerer’s tormented childhood escaping the Nazis — as well as some of his weird, wonderful commercial work and, in later years, strange transition from children’s book author to erotic illustrator.
Herb Vogel, a postal clerk-turned-art collector, has died at the age of 89. If you haven’t seen the fascinating 2009 doc, Herb and Dorothy, be sure to check it out and see how this man, who never made more than $23,000 a year, and his wife, amassed one of the greatest collections of modern art that the world has ever seen — and later donated it to Washington D.C.’s National Gallery of Art, as well as galleries all in 50 states. A true American original!
