O'Dork's Nonogon Adventure
Apulgrimage to Pete Kennedy from Luke Walker on Vimeo      
O'Dork's Nonogon Adventure
The 1.54 mins video pans across two images in O’Dork’s Nonogon Adventure (also in Visions of O’Dork) showing the intricate drawing, colour and inventiveness in many of the images in the book(s). The story/images could be a storyboard for a movie. Luke Walker’s use of the camera panning over two images plus the beautiful soundscape he has added by manipulating a track originally written for the character called ‘Squidgeratkin’ by Mark Newby Robson give insight into some of the mystery which the book(s) deal with.

Street Art Santiago Chile
The Youtube film about this book shows an array of images of street art from Santiago, which bursts at the seams with an abundance of eye-popping, jaw-dropping murals. Stencil graffiti artist Lord K2 documents 14 neighborhoods within the capital of Chile with his arresting photography and intimate conversations with local artists. Through more than 200 images and 80 interviews, learn how street art was influenced by American, European, and Brazilian graffiti and how its evolution runs parallel to the political history of the nation itself. During the Cold War, nationalist muralist brigades spread socialist idealism through symbols of power and oppression. Santiago's repressed lower classes gradually usurped the art form, and murals eventually became a weapon of resistance. This vibrant city, with its array of distinct cultural districts, invites you to experience its fascinating and tightly knit artistic community that has flourished since the fall of Pinochet's dictatorship in 1990.

The Gray Curtain
Watch the Youtube trailer for this book and see how the book Gray Curtain will help you discover, through informative text and 120 vivid images, the interrelationships between commercial fishing, expanding gray seal populations, and great white sharks along the beaches of Cape Cod and the northeast coast. This ‘Gray Curtain’ has come about as a result of geologic and environmental changes, as well as animal migrations and population increases that have impacted the area. There are great transformations taking place in the region, and both fishermen and scientists have played a role in these dynamic coastal changes, though they don't always agree on why the changes have occurred. In the minds of many commercial fishermen, the return of the now-protected gray seal has played a major part, causing a new charismatic, apex predator to enter the picture: the Great White Shark. This enlightening book brings together the main factors that have created the phenomenon of The Gray Curtain.

Pumpkin Cinema
Here's a link to a Youtube trailer for Pumpkin Cinema! People celebrate the magical holiday of Halloween in a wide variety of ways, but most will, at some point, turn off the lights and allow a movie to take the excitement to the next level. This book recommends over 100 titles that are guaranteed to make your Halloween fun and frightening! Halloween only comes once a year, so you can't afford to waste precious thrill time on a lousy movie! However, a great horror movie does not necessarily translate into a great Halloween flick, and the book uses a simple set of guidelines to help you avoid the "boo!" blues: the films included here are fast paced, have essences of autumn (if they are not set on Halloween itself!), and have a trim run time (under two hours). Enjoy this fun trailer!
