Ryan Larkin on the comeback trail

Ryan Larkin PosterRyan Larkin, the celebrated wunderkind of 1960s Canadian animation whose downfall was the subject of Chris Landreth’s Oscar-winnning short RYAN (2004), is attempting to make a comeback. He is currently working on a new film, SPARE CHANGE, which will be his first animated film in many decades. To help raise funds for the film, Larkin recently created a silk-screen poster (pictured at right) celebrating the 100th anniversary of Saint-Laurent Boulevard, a famous street in Montreal; Larkin has long been the street’s most celebrated panhandler.
