Be Right Back

I’ve been very busy for the last month on a super secret project, and I’m excited to say that I can share it with you this week.

I was contacted by director Maura Axelrod, who has made a documentary about the artist Maurizio Cattelan ( Maura needed a few snippets of animation for the documentary, to bring to life some of the stories that were never documented/filmed.

I got some of the Superdoodle team on board for this project; initial illustrations/designs/ideas by me, about 5 minutes of animation by the brill Kim Alexander and myself, and some extra character design work from Bill Mund. It’s been really fun!

This week has been especially exciting as we’ve had the great news that the documentary will be premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, screening at the Guggenheim Museum in New York this April.

The information about the documentary is at the Tribeca website here: and reads as follows:

Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back, directed and written by Maura Axelrod (USA) – World Premiere, Documentary. An art world upstart, provocative and elusive artist Maurizio Cattelan made his career on playful and subversive works that send up the artistic establishment, until a retrospective at the Guggenheim in 2011 finally solidified his place in the contemporary art canon. Axelrod’s equally playful profile leaves no stone unturned in trying tofigure out: who is Maurizio Cattelan?
