Au menu tonight, Greengage à la Warhol, Salad de Alf London and for dessert, the Dorothy Kilgallens Gateau of Marzipan!

Those amusing recipes and bright colour illustrations are le fruit de la collaboration between interior decorator Suzie Frankfurt and a young advertising illustrator and artist, Andy Warhol, while the hand-lettered were done by Mrs Warhola – Andy’s mother. Although this collection of fanciful recipes aren’t meant to be eaten, I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on an original  1959′s copy of this cookbook.

Cactus Flower

Cactus Flower yoo seungah beach Cactus Flower yoo seungah blue

Cactus Flower is a short film by Korean artist  Yoo Seungah about two men living together among plants and a cactus they are trying to get to bloom. The couple enjoys dancing on Jacques Dutronc Et moi, et moi, et moi song, watching old American movies, laying on the beach relaxing, but we soon realise that what is missing in their life is having a child.  The impeccable pacing of the animation and the eclectic use of colours and textures gives this animation plenty of charm.
