Turns out today is the 5 year anniversary of the release of Rise Of The Guardians. I had already decides I wanted to work with animation, but this movie really set it in stone.
The movie was beautiful. The detail made me gasp in awe and the movements were so fluid I couldn’t look away. At some point during the movie, I decided that’s what I wanted to do. Before I left the theater I knew what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to work on cartoons or on movies and I wanted to make them beautiful. I wanted someone to look at what I made and feel the same thing I felt when I saw that movie.

It felt only fitting that I celebrate the anniversary with a quick doodle of Jack Frost. If you’re on mobile, turn your brightness up so you can see that white charcoal!
