Gene Deitch’s office


Last month, my pal Rusty Frank told me she was going to Prague to perform (she’s a tap dancer and expert on the history of tap) and she was wondering if I had any friends there. I told her to contact Gene Deitch and his lovely wife, Zdenka. She did so and apparently they are all “new best friends”. Rusty took a 35 second video on her cel phone – click here to see a quick tour of Gene’s home office.

I wish I could’ve been there with them, but this is the next best thing. I’m delighted that I was able to hook up two friends in such a faraway place.

Here’s Gene and Rusty last week.

And here’s a nice piece of art, by Ken O’Connor, on Gene’s wall.
