Billy Crystal in tribute to Robin Williams at the #Emmys:
"It’s very hard to talk about him in the past, because he was so present in all of our lives."
"For almost 40 years he was the brightest star in the comedy galaxy … [and his] beautiful light will continue to shine on us forever. And the glow will be so bright, it’ll warm your heart. It’ll make your eyes glisten, and you’ll think to yourselves, Robin Williams… what a concept.”
How to Explain Amazon’s Kindle to Charles Dickens
As a student at Cardiff School of Art and Design, illustrator Rachel Walsh was asked to create a project that would explain something modern/internet-based to somebody who lived and died before 1900.
Walsh’s innovative idea was to take a large book and create 40 miniature books from its pages in order to explain the kindle to Dickens. The covers are recreations from real books and include Dicken’s own novels, his favourite childhood books, and some of the artist’s own.
Whose Disney ladies were the best? What you may not know is that each character in an animated film is done by a different animator. You may find similarity in them.
- James Baxtor was for both Belle and Giselle (known for their large ballroom gowns)
- Ken Duncan was for Meg, Captain Amelia and Jane (for their curvy bottoms).
- Mark Henn was for Tiana, Jasmine and Mulan (multicultural girls with beautiful brunette hair).
- Glen Keane was for Ariel, Pocahontas and Rapunzel (known for the movement and length of their hair).
- And Tony Fucile did the work on Esmerelda (for being the most bad*** gypsy around).

I’ve always noticed similarities between Meg, Jane, and Amelia’s faces.
When I was upset or suffering from a terrible day, nothing cheered me up more, even for a minute, than watching this man’s films or watching his interviews online. There is no way you could not laugh or crack a smile and his comedic nature. Thank you Robin.
