Mork Calling Orson by AndyFairhurst Mork Calling Orson by AndyFairhurst
Nanu Nanu. This was a tribute I did on the day or day after ( timezones and all that ) of Robin Williams untimely death. A constant through out my life from the 70s when I was blown away as a kid by Mork & Mindy. He was, in my opinion, a brilliant actor. He'll be sorely missed.

For anyone not as familiar with Mork & Mindy, he always wore trademark rainbow braces ( suspenders in USA? ) when he wasn't contacting Orson from Ork in his red space uniform at the end of each episode.

This is great tribute for Robin Williams. I remember when he first appeared on "Happy Days" as Mork, and I certainly remember "Mork & Mindy." He was indeed a terrific actor, too. Did anyone else see that Law & Order: SVU episode he guest starred in? He delivered a great performance, and better still, his character escaped.

I like how the shadow transitioning to a rainbow calls to mind Mork's suspenders--I had forgotten about those--but they also suggest an ascent into heaven. Nanu Nanu, Robin Williams. We'll miss you.

You basically described what I was trying to portray in this but the 'heaven' bit is more he has left this world and is once more a part of the cosmos.

That's a good interpretation, too. All the chemicals and minerals that give us form came from the stars, and eventually, we return to the stars one way or another.

"You know sir, I don't know my value in this universe.  But I do know that I made a few people happier than they would have been without me.  As long as I know that, I'm as rich as I ever need to be.  So I'll catch you on the rebound, your magnitude.  So until next week.......nanu nanu."

Hey, think you'll do a tribute piece for Richard Attenborough?

No, I don't normally do tribute pieces. this is the first one I think ( I did a purple rose in an old Batman piece for Heath Ledger but that was a really subtle tribute) I AM doing a Jurassic Park piece though weirdly enough, so I may make a small tribute within that. He was a legend though, one of the last British icons of the silver screen.
