Fred the Clown
I mentioned in April that a musical group was planning to set one of Roger Langridge’s Fred the Clown stories to music and do a live performance of it as a part of a TEDx event. That performance, by FourPlay String Quartet, is now up on YouTube (watch it below).
And speaking of Langridge, he mentioned earlier this month his plans to raise money for The Hero Initiative by charging for sketches of Marvel and DC characters at HeroesCon. He posted on his blog this week that he raised $360 for the charity. You can see the sketches he drew on his blog.
Roger Langridge, known for his work on the Eisner-nominated Snarked! as well as The Muppets, Popeye and Thor: The Mighty Avenger, is listed as a speaker on the TEDxSydney website. Langridge, however, isn’t actually going to be at TEDx conference set for May 26.
“A musical group has set one of my Fred the Clown stories to music and they’re going to be doing a live webcast of the performance,” he said in an email. “All I did was supply them with some digital files that they’ll be using as slides to accompany the music. They actually performed it a couple of years ago I think, but I never saw it, so I’m rather looking forward to getting to see it at last.”
That sounds like fun; I’ll mark my calendar to post a link to it once it is up.
