Jim Trainor

Tue, Nov 13 / 6 pm

Jim Trainor has been making animated films since the age of thirteen. Working with only a black magic marker on office paper, he creates humorous nature and ethnographic documentaries, which through crude movements and simplistic renderings reveal poetic insights into the inner workings of the human psyche.
