DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.
I found some old art books today called ‘Celtic Art: The methods of Construction by George Bain’ Which, I found interesting. I only have 4 out of the 7, they are very old (From 55 years ago). I thought I would just share some scans from them, some people might find them useful. :)
Ohhhh horror vacui neat to see tutorials on it.
KNOTWORK *flips table* I have the rest of this book and it’s amazing and I’m trying to learn how to do it myself. IT’S SO TEDIOUS BUT I LOVE IT
Can’t wait to see How to Train Your Dragon 2! I was privy to some excellent sneak peeks during my internship and can’t wait to see the finished film! I think my favorite parts are still watching Hiccup think and figure out his cool contraptions.
Created this piece for my maps class. The assignment was to pick a chapter from the book “On the Map” and then depict an aspect of its contents. I chose the chapter on Treasure Island and treasure maps in general. There was a passage that stuck with me, describing how most treasure seekers don’t find any treasure on their expeditions. Rather, their experiences and comradery are what make the voyage truly valuable, if they live to see the journey’s end.
I’m going to Strasbourg tomorrow!!! I’m so excited. We might take a day trip into Germany and the Black Forest 8-D AHHHHHH. Back soon, love and hugs~
-Your friend Tally
Tally is not only an AMAZING comic artist but she’s living the dream! I hope my girls grow up and don’t let the constant yet abstract notion of fear dictate how they live in this world. Way to go Tally!! :D
I love this so much! As someone who’s only really started to travel in the last year, I totally get that initial terror. I’ve been pretty fortunate, and made so many friends all over the world. I went to Boston on a whim this weekend and got to spend an evening with comic people I met mostly through twitter - and everyone was wonderful. Yes, I got terrible food poisoning on the way home, but I also got to have barbecue and Manhattans with people who used to be strangers. Travel! It’s good for you.
Really been inspired by my latest batch of Zumba classes, so I thought to sketch my amazing instructor, Angie! Who may or may not be my model for my Joan of Arc character. Seriously, she could outrun/jump/outlast the french soldiers.
