Can you imagine if your dad was Terry Gilliam? That your dad made Monty Python funnier and Hunter S. Thompson weirder? That there you were, surrounded by drawers and drawers full of piles and piles of his old archives, of hand drawn art, story boards, and original scripts, cut outs and concept sketches? Bet the cinephile side of the Internet would just freak. Well, it has. Luckily for all of us, Terry Gilliam’s daughter Holly has started a blog chronicling her father’s work. “I think it should be seen by everyone so I am organizing the archive so it can eventually be put in a book and an exhibition,” she writes. Well, thank you. Let’s take a look at what we’ve got so far.
