Today is Criterion Affection’s birthday, five years from when I first posted an illustration of Wong Kar-wai’s IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE. And I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has been following, commenting, suggesting, and sharing my little pet project ever since. You are all fantastic! It’s been so much fun being a part of the online Criterion community and having the chance to talk about films. It’s also pretty rewarding for me to look back and see how my illustrations have evolved and improved over the years. There are still three days left to buy prints of everything, so don’t forget to do that.
And finally, to the hardworking folks over at Criterion: this has all secretly been a five year job application. Call me.
