Better half

My friend Runar sent me this shot of his new and first tattoo. It took seven hours for the artist to render it on his underarm. It was created in the old school style (with a needle) as opposed to machine technique. When I asked him why he got it he said, "My better half thought I should have a tattoo, so she paid for it. What a wife I've got!!".

Rare sequence

This relic was originally created for the "Glowing Fish" sequence that was to precede the fight with the giant squid in 20,000 Leagues Under the SeaThis rare animation is lucky to have survived over the years. Half of this footage is in black and white while the other half is in color. The "Glowing Fish" segment is followed by a short test sequence (also unused) showing the Nautilus heading for the surface surrounded by flourescent schools of fish.
