    Wow! Jovan. This is wonderfully eerie! I saw Alphaville at the Valhalla cinema with my brother 10 years ago. Love Jean Luc Godard! :)

  • O Dear Annie! We must have been at the same Sci-Fi festival because they only showed it once at the Valhalla. I hear the Twilight Zone music coming on! :)

    have not seen the film but it’s a wonderful quick drawing, G….
    and i swear all your girls (except for the few i’ve privately mentioned) have bits of onni in them… some more than others… : )
    p.s. how lucky you’re to get to draw during the train ride daily…

  • Maybe because I have a photographic image of Onni in my head I subconsciously end up drawing her almost every time. I guess I’m still very much in love with her.
    Sometimes the train journey can get a little bumpy. You just have to learn how steady your hand. In my case Left hand. :))

    Happy you loved that superb movie, with Anna Karina and Eddie Constantine, this one and also “La jetée” from Chris Marker were among these undeground movies which truly amplified my natural taste for SF and fantastic… I was 22 at this time and saw it several times in the Cinémathèque where Godard used to meet his fellows from the Nouvelle Vague, Truffaut, Rohmer and the others…she does’nt really looks like Anna Karina, but I love this image anyway !

  • I was on the train when I decided to do this homage to a film l always loved and admired. I know it doesn’t look anything like Anna Karina, who was a brilliant actress. I’ve always been a great admirer of French cinema. 
    The likes Renoir, Cocteau, Godard and Truffaut have always been among my favourites. So you went to the Cinematheque? Wow! It would have a magical and exciting time to live in! 
    Apologies for my youthful enthusiasm.
