Gerald Scarfe 'Stage and Screen' at House of Illustration

Whilst at the House of Illustration, I went to see the Gerald Scarfe exhibition 'Stage and Screen'. The exhibition showed how skilful Scarfe is in a variety of areas, as it showed his sketches for Disney's Hercules, costumes, drawings for the Pink Floyd 'The Wall' and his work for 'The Nutcracker' at the English National Ballet. I really enjoyed seeing his painted film strips for his short film 'Long Drawn Out Trip'. Particularly as I am in the middle of an animation project, it was really inspiring to see the drawings. It was interesting to see how much/how little changes there were between each drawing, and how he transitioned between angles and scenes.
