Everywhere I turn now, I see... HARRY POTTER. I can't escape it! Everyone is doing fanart or reviewing movies or doing a reread and it's eating away at meeee. A Very Potter Musical is STILL lurking in my thoughts -- every now and then Draco, wake-up!
pops into my head and all hope is lost. [Have I mentioned the perfection that is Joey Richter's face? I just want to sit and draw him and his weird jaw and his fabulous expressions. They are GOLD.]
Anyway, I think I want to do a reread now. It's been forever! I remember really being disappointed with the last few books for a million reasons. The ~magic~ was kind of gone for me. So maybe I'll like it more this time around, I don't know.
A week from now I will probably be descending into Harry Potter madness and popping out fanart and fanfiction. D:
Nowadays, I pretty much live and breathe for all things animated. I am hooked
. I think it started because I was looking for a book on illustration and found one on animation instead, The Animator's Survival Kit by Richard Williams. And to see him describe all of these master animators that he has met -- it's just incredible. Now I can't see something that's animated and not
stop what I'm doing and try to break it down in my head. Even cartoons I used to look down on, I realize now how much freaking work
they require! And I guess I just keep watching anything and everything animated with one real question in mind: what makes this good
? Or bad? What could make it better? Why is Pixar the best? Why was Disney so great? And from what I can see so far, it's all boiling down to 1) the writing and 2) attention to detail.
