Representation on so many levels, storytelling on so many levels and people being able to relate to one part or many parts of Penelope or all this other family; people being able to see themselves and their stories being told.
the red album is such a masterful work of songwriting in its purest form of storytelling. truly, i love it for its tumultuous sonic-hood, because that’s what makes it captivating and memorable. each and every song on red encapsulates specific life moments and feelings so purely, that i never thought someone could put into words (let alone a great song!) red is taylor swift giving a master class in storytelling through songs, and i will always love and respect that.
My school uses a 4-1-4 schedule, which means I have a one-month academic term in January. Just finished the first week! Also started my Jan+Spring bullet journal.
>I’m learning about design in my Digital Storytelling class, so I’m thinking about making an infographic about how I study Japanese soon! (And also get a grade on it :p)
>I’m also taking weightlifting this month, so for those of you want to start tracking your workouts, I’ll be talking about the app I use and other things I’ve been doing to start taking better care of myself ♡
EDIT: Also I just hit 1100 followers???? 😭 I honestly never expected anything like that; thanks all of you! 本当にありがとう！
When you’re like “Okay this is the weekend I can finally sit down and finish all of those comics I started ages ago” and then you watch Over the Garden Wall in your animated storytelling class and suddenly nothing else matters.
How does animator @juliapott come up with original ideas for her animations? In this clip, she explains the inspiration behind her film Belly, and how that became its own unique story. In her JAM online course for ages 8-14, she helps kids develop their own original ideas into animated shorts.
Back in school means lots and lots of new art. This is for my comic storytelling class, where the first assignment was to capture the main plot points of a story and condense it down to nine panels. I chose the Japanese folktale, Momotaro.
I’m excited to make more comics this semester (my last semester!!!). It’ll be fun.
Kids don’t have to wait to get their dream job. In this JAM online course, kids 8-14 can write, direct, & produce their own animated short with help of Adventure Time writer and professional animator Julia Pott.
The course is FREE for kids who register before August 31, 2016. Kids who complete their final animation by August 31st, 2016 have an opportunity to be shown on Cartoon Network’s platforms.
