U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told Cuba that they must improve their human rights record before the US trade embargo will be lifted. Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez responded, reasonably enough, by reminding Mr. Kerry of the USA’s own highly dubious human rights record, including the police shootings of black people and the torture of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere ..

Mabel & Waddles WIP

I’ve baked these two and I’m now working on Mabel’s hair and legs. She’s going to get a pair of sneakers later!
I’m thinking about attaching a ribbon to her headband but I’m not sure. I think it would look cute but she doesn’t usually have a ribbon (except in this episode) and maybe it would be a bit too much.
What do you guys think?

New innovations in animation technology are constantly changing the landscape of animation around the world, making it possible for all makers from amateurs to pros to create their own works in whatever style and tone they choose. In Britain, it feels like the general output is restricted to safe and simple children’s entertainment, hobby based, or student short films designed to achieve festival and BAFTA nods.

These guys may be young, but they have already become animation masters, and I find it amazing to see such a small team of well resourced, multi-talented creators adding this special diversity of film-making to our industry that’s badly needed more of. Having the freedom to play, experiment, play around with styles and tones, finding interesting ways of sharing their work, they are somehow still going, and are getting more popular.

At some point a while ago, they decided they were going to spend their valuable time to making just the intro sequence to a fake 80s cartoon show by the name of “Super Turbo Atomic Ninja Rabbit”, based on a drawing from the director’s childhood for that matter, and hoping the project’s nostalgic influence will draw attention. Aside from the 16:9 ratio (but even I probably couldn’t resist), you can plainly see the attention to detail is virtually immaculate. Particularly the line art style, frame timing, pacing, layout, animated effects, sound effects, even a hint of animation cel drop shadow, and made sure to include that mad corny epic spirit of 80s sci-fi action cartoons. It practically replicates the Thundercats intro. You really felt like the ultimate forces of the universe were blinding your eyes to dust and splitting apart the atoms of your very existence just from watching this piece.

It may not as awesome as the Thundercats intro, but I can tell this was a lot of fun for them to make!

What’s this? I’ve decided to do a weekly comic! I have a passion for animal care, and if you know me, you’d know that I have a ton of rescued and adopted animals!
I’ve been wanting to make a weekly comic for a while, so I decided to put my love of art and animals together to make this Friday comic!
What animal would you like to know more about?
