Discovering Dad

Tuesday August 07, 2012 Written by jonty

Dads can be great hoarders. A brief snoop through the bedside table can reveal all kinds of wonders: smoking pipes, harmonicas, even love letters to mum. But Holly Gilliam's dad Terry might just have the coolest stash of stuff around.

He's Terry Gilliam, the visual genius behind Monty Python's Flying Circus and movies such as Brazil, The Fisher King, and The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus. On her blog Discovering Dad Holly shares sketches, storyboards and notes from her Dad's archives. This would've been a great blog had Terry himself been responsible, but coming from his daughter – who seemingly shares stuff as she finds it – makes it all the more special.
