- listening to sad songs
- reading old letters
- reading old chats
- stalking their social media
- writing about them
- meeting mutual friends to talk about them
- telling the new people you meet about them. That’s like extending their life in your story.
- thinking up scenarios of crossing paths with them years later
This is so much easier said than done and can sound pretty corny, but at the end of the day, you need to be confident in who you are and what you’re doing. Your past happened, but you can make your future whatever you want it to be!
Really really honored to have done the Google Doodle today for one of my animation heroes Lotte Reiniger! She made the oldest surviving feature length animation, and created the predecessor to the multiplane camera, predating disney. Her films still hold up as extremely beautiful and witty fairy tales.
I’m really thankful to my team, who trusted me when I said I was going to build my own rig and puppets and film a 90 second short in a few months.
Morning doodle~ still trying to get out of artblock ovo this was done on the back of a notecard with a colored pencil and highlighter. You guys don’t need fancy art supplies to create art, you can do anything when you put your mind to it~ 💙
