i’ve seen more posts of people being excited for Home than this movie, which made me upset because this movie comes out before Home does (not that i am saying that you shouldn’t praise Home as well). and as for Big Hero 6 (a movie that also comes out after the Book of Life) and the people saying that there is a lack of representation of Asians in media, i feel you. why? because there is a bigger lack of hispanics, and i agree Disney messed up, you be upset. but be happy for Hispanics as well because we finally got an animated movie representing us and our culture. so please go see this movie when it comes out.
that is all i ask.
im soexcited about this movie but i keep seeing this post and want to add that everyone should also keep in mind that dia de los muertos is specifically MEXICAN. la muerte (santa muerte) and a lot of what is being depicted is seen primarily in MEXICAN culture and should not be lumped together in its entirety as a “hispanic” thing.
I need to explain a little bit more about the cast, because seriously this is so cool:
The cast of characters in the movie is almost entirely Mexican, save for a few minor characters who (from what I can tell) aren’t relevant to the plot. The voice cast is ALL POC with like 3 exceptions, and most of the cast members are Mexican, meaning that this is a story being told by characters and by people who have a direct cultural connection to it. That’s huge.
ALL OF THIS AND MORE! GO SEE IT!
Hispanics need so much more representation then we get <3
Yayy culturesss <333
All of this! I was lucky enough to get to go see an advance screening of The Book of Life, and IT IS GORGEOUS. Totally worth seeing just for the character designs and environment alone! It definitely has the most unique art direction I’ve seen in a while!
Fun times in Atlanta! The evening starts with drinks with the crew, followed by a screening of “The Awesomes,” and ends with an epic arm wrestling match—
LA vs. ATL!
I’m that one person way in the back there who’s face got covered up by someone else’s head, haha. XD It was a fun night—really cool to get to see The Awesomes on the big screen!
In honor of hitting 69 followers I will be giving away this small shopping cart I found in the trash at work (I’m a janitor so this isn’t as strange as it sounds, I find all sorts of crap). You do not have to be following me, and I will ship anywhere in the world on my own money. If you would like to win said small shopping cart reblog this post by June 30th! Winner will be chosen at random.
Aw thanks! :) That fat chicken was one of the first things I animated at SCAD. But anyways, your owl paintings are amazing! They have such a wonderful use of color and so much life and character!
Been rewatching this show lately and felt the urge to fanart. Also shitty background is shitty. Yup.
Sketches of my design of a crocs-wearing Batman for an animation assignment last quarter.
Color art of my character Brock Lobstahman, a seafood chef who can talk to lobsters. Drawn in Copic marker. Don’t mind the crappy phone photo—the drawing’s to big to fit in my scanner.
Silly uses of Motorcity sound clips! ;)
Featuring Brock the seafood chef who woke up one morning and discovered he can talk to lobsters… (He owns a restaurant called Brock Lobster. It’s very silly.)
(The final for my 2D Character Animation class. Sound from the awesome show Motorcity.)
