Robin Williams Mural 

A mural honoring the late Robin Williams has been painted in his hometown, and serves as a powerful reminder about seeking help during suicide prevention month.

The painting of Williams, who was born in Chicago, surrounded by his iconic Disney character, the Genie from “Aladdin,” was erected on the side of the Concord Music Hall in The Windy City. The project is a collaboration between local street artists, and appears to serve as a juxtaposition between the entertaining characters that Williams created, and the pain he suffered quietly on the inside.

September is suicide prevention awareness month, and it’s been over four years since Williams committed suicide at his home at the age of 63.

Comic Genius: Portraits of Funny People By Matt Hoyle

9780733630705

This star-studded tribute to the kings and queens of comedy draws together such legendary names as Steve Martin, Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais, and many more.

Granted extraordinary access, photographer Matt Hoyle has captured his subjects in portraits that are works of art in themselves—by turns zany and deadpan, laugh-out-loud and contemplative. Accompanying them are first-person reflections from each of the comedians on life and laughter that always cut straight to the heart of comedy: it’s funny because it’s true.

Page after sidesplitting page in Comic Genius: Portraits of Funny People ($40) offers prose as engaging as each portrait is memorable. Here, in one handsome package, is the gift of laughter itself.

The 200 page book published by Chronicle Books will be released on October 15, 2013.
