Life Itself


I sketched this while watching the movie Life Itself. It is about movie critic, Roger Ebert. I love movies and always liked to see Siskel and Ebert at the Movies. I liked Roger’s reviews because I felt like he enjoyed the same kind of movies I do. (I think Roger had a soft spot for Science Fiction and Fantasy…) Life Itself is a wonderful movie. It is like hanging out with a good friend again. I laughed at Siskel and Ebert sniping at each other. I smiled at Roger’s marriage to Chaz. I was sad to see some of his pain towards the end…but also inspired by his humor and desire to continue living and working. I think it is fitting that a man who meant so much to movies now is the subject of one. Movies are a kind of magic. Now Roger is part of the magic.
