my latest illustration! an ode to my troubled love/hate relationship with clutter.
Have you heard? Dreamworks Animation and Studio Mir, the company behind Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, announced Thursday they will work together to produce up to four new animated television series in the next four years.
This is huge both because a Korean company has never partnered on such a large scale with an American animation group, and because these shows will be created in 2D animation. I’m ecstatic!
It’s great to see that Korean animation is being taken seriously enough to be treated as a creative equal rather than just as a source of cheap production. Studio Mir’s work is undeniably beautiful, and if Mir’s talent can be combined with the storytelling prowess exhibited in How to Train Your Dragon 2, I will be a very happy customer.
An article inthe Korea Herald had the following to say:
“The contract with DreamWorks is meaningful since we will be working as partners,” Studio Mir founder and executive producer Yoo Jae-myung said.
“This has never been done before by a Korean studio.”
A Studio Mir spokesman said details regarding the titles of the cartoons could not be revealed, but that they would be in 2-D.
This is great news for both companies, since each has had some fairly concerning press in the past few weeks, between the financial troubles of Dreamworks Animation (now under direction of new chief financial officer Fazal Merchant) and the on-again/off-again nature of Korra Book Three, now safely on Nick.com.
Speaking of The Legend of Korra, Studio Mir uploaded a lovely picture on Facebook yesterday thanking fans for their support of Book Three.

Hadn’t heard about this at all. That’s awesome.
James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.
From the film’s IndieGo page:
Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.
In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

the worst thing you can say to someone is ‘you’re too sensitive’ because that’s basically saying ‘you feel things more deeply and fully than I do and this inconveniences me because now I have to be more mindful of my own actions’
you’re not too sensitive, the world is just callous and stubborn. sensitivity doesn’t make you weak and callousness doesn’t make you strong.
'Thank you so much for all the love and support messages, especially after the finale of Book 3 released! We really wanted to reach each one of you with our personal thank you note, but instead, here is our thank you treat!
We will come back so stay tuned for Book 4 ’

This is good, my one prob with it
"Diet Racism, for those who aren’t directly contributing to oppression," uh: wrong.
exactly. clearly, they are.
most ignored relationship in the series - hannah/franz
cotton, algodón, cotón
how many other “inventions” of the modern world are overlooked because they came from POC?
I’m so tired of people assuming there were no amazing world advancements happening in mexico and latin america.
THIS WAS THE FUCKING TENTH CENTURY! A very very low point in European history. but white people are the pillar of civilization,right?
|Fems and sjws love to write off the accounts of discrimination against """white""" groups because of """white privilege""" but as soon as you point out how good they've got it compared to others suddenly oppression "is not a competition". All races have been oppressed at some level and almost all races have been oppressors at some level. These people obviously never paid attention in history class.|
|i remember learning in health class last year that more straight females have hiv than anyone else, actually. so maybe us straight girls shouldn't be able to give blood.|
|(in response to the Bechdel Test) I remember hearing that the Bechdel test was created in a 1985 comic strip as a joke. It was never meant to pass judgement or be a guide, it was a joke on how few movies had that requirement (with Alien being the only one at the time). It's very flawed and people really shouldn't be following it the way they do. (source: The Big Picture with MovieBob episode "Blecch, Dull Tests" on the Escapist)|
But the number of movies that fail is ASTOUNDING
