The Horrific Art of Olivier de Sagazan
I tried single-lens reflex camera today.
It’s really grey here in Finland. Everything looks even more depressing in the photographs.
And THIS is why narrative structure is important. There were, to my (exceedingly and ironically limited) mind, two really interesting films this past year: 12 Years a Slave and Pacific Rim, and both were interesting for the ways that they subverted narrative convention. In 12 Years - as this essay says better than I could - the rejection of both the White Savior and the Happy End is a critical intervention into the way - and there’s really only the one - that not just films about slaves, but films about people of color are told. It’s as if there’s really just the one audience, and they are by default white, and white people must be catered to (cf. the young male demographic), and so you invariably have the Great White Hope who swoops in to save the day and the people of color. Lacking this, and often in addition to it, you have the happy ending - it was all bad, but it got better because of this one exceptional person. And, as we all know, if you have ONE exceptional person, then there’s no reason why ALL the people shouldn’t be exceptional. In placing the onus of change on individuals, we escape responsibility for the institutional structures within which individuals must operate, and it’s one very small step from there to “I pulled myself up by my bootstraps and so can you.”
And Pacific Rim - I can’t add much to what’s already been said in many ways and places here on Tumblr, but it bears reminding that even though, in the end, the final, final triumph is given to the young white guy, the fact that this film has two protagonists - one of whom is female, non-Western, and non-white - that it’s a female gaze checking out the guy at one point, that the contributions of everyone are not only valued but required for the mission to succeed, that personal sacrifice is required of not only old but young, and that we nonetheless get a diversity of characters speaks volumes about what action films could be, if studios could wean themselves from the addictive powers of the myth of the white male fan.

For the first time ever I quite like how the hair turned out even though it took ages to draw, as did the coat. I really dislike drawing that Belstaff.
The crown is referenced from a few photos of a Hiddleston photoshoot as I wanted a quite simple crown to fit with the mood.
Dedicated to Cumberbum because she’s great!
