UPDATE (12 February 2013):
Earlier today, the producer/director/writer of Better Things: The Life and Choices of Jeffrey Catherine Jones, Maria Cabardo, posted the following picture of Gray Morrow to her Facebook photo album:
The photo was taken by Jeffrey Jones, and I recognized the pose and lighting immediately! Very cool to see! To his credit, and to the great benefit of his painting, Jones didn’t succumb to the desire to spell everything out, to invent all of the forms that he couldn’t make out in his reference photo, but instead simply embraced the idea of lost edges.
If you are able, please contribute to Maria’s Indiegogo fundraiser for Better Things. Documentary films about illustrators and comics artists are few and far between, but if you want more, you need to step up and support the intrepid filmmakers who are willing to stride out on a limb and make it happen. The perks/rewards are cool, and because Maria has chosen to run a “Flexible Funding campaign,” all of the perks will be delivered even if the total money raised does not match the stated goal. In other words, if you contribute at the level to get the art book (for instance), you WILL receive the art book.
