Alex Hirsch: My goal with Gravity Falls is to make people as paranoid and insane as I was as a child, and I’m delighted to see it’s working! Haha. Gravity Falls has transformed the children of America into an army of Dippers. I couldn’t be more proud!
If there’s one thing I love about the Gravity Falls fandom, it’s how much talent there is out there. I’ve never had so many artists I’ve wanted to follow, so many theories to pick apart, so many lyric comics that have been so inspiring. This fandom is just dripping creativity from it’s pores.
and I’m really humbled to be a part of it. It’s like, I WANT to compare myself to everyone’s work… but for a style so universal, everyone takes it and makes it their own. I can tell moringmark from mistrel-fox from cherryviolets from kiki-kit from wittyarsonist from genalovestoons from life-writer. It’s so refreshing and inspiring and keeps me with a constant flow of interesting ideas and themes.
I’m just really glad I jumped into the fandom when I did. Sure, I haven’t been in the fandom a long time, but you are ALL incredibly talented, gifted people. This show is creating not just an army of crazed Dipper theorists, but the army of the next animators. I’m so excited to see that, and I’m glad you all think I’m worthy of enjoying what you offer to us all, free of charge. I’m even more humbled to be thought of one of the “better” artists in the fandom. That really means a lot to me and helps me continue to improve every day (because even an old coot like me can improve! Every day!).
Never think your work is bad! Keep doing what you love! Your work is what keeps this world turning. Don’t ever stop creating and reach for those dreams; you all deserve everything good coming to you, seriously. <3
So pretty much the first thing Alex says on Between The Pines is that we are NOT paranoid, we SHOULD be over-analyzing every tiny detail in the background of every scene, and there’s a bunch of stuff we haven’t found yet.
“When I was 12 years old, I was obsessed with codes, conspiracies, and secret messages. I would record TV commercials with SoundRecorder.exe on Windows 95 and reverse them to see if I was being subliminally influenced to watch Pokémon by Japanese spies. (It turns out I wasn’t. Or was I?) My goal with Gravity Falls is to make people as paranoid and insane as I was as a child, and I’m delighted to see it’s working! Haha. Gravity Falls has transformed the children of America into an army of Dippers. I couldn’t be more proud!”
if bipper copied himself with the magic printer would that make another dipper AND bill? could bipper mass produce dippers and bills?? could bipper take over the world with an army of dippers and bills by just copying himself alot????
