A documentary film two years in the making, providing an insightful look into the lives and inspiration of over fifty prolific artists
The Temple of Art documentary Kickstarter is live!
Temple of Art is a project conceived by photographer Allan Amato, his quest over a two-year period to document the lives of artists, distilling their inspiration and motivation through media like interview and self portrait. It is a gallery show on both coasts, a book, and soon, a documentary.
I’m still a little shocked to be included in this project, which includes loads of my first art idols (like Dave McKean, David Mack, Jim Mahfood, Kent Williams, Junko Mizuno) and current friends and colleagues in illustration (like Marc Scheff, Dadu Shin, and Kyle Stecker). It’s produced by everyone’s best friend, Neil Gaiman (among others)!
[It’s also a bizarre personal circle that Roman Dirge is in this, I was a goth comics babby and I named my pet dove after him when I was 14…)
