Notes from a Glen Keane lectureEnjoy! He was such a wonderful and lovely person to listen to and meet. I got to see him draw Tarzan, Ariel and Beast. I got to go to a company event, so he shook my hand signed my Tangled book and chatted about what I did for a living and stuff I been working on.Notes from a Glen Keane lecture3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- You want to connect, you want to put your own DNA into the picture and connect.
-Vulnerability. Telling someone who you are. Honestly revealing parts of yourself sincerely. The key to animation is sincerity. Step beyond your walls and share as an artist.
- Animation is the ultimate art form. No other art form will challenge you as much as animation can.
- You always want to be restless, I always had one foot out the door at Disney.
- it is important to not hold back and share all you have to your fellow artists. Got to keep giving it out and trust me it'll pour right back in.
- Drawing is about feeling.
- Conveying an emotion of peacefulness is just trying to capture someone living in that moment.
- Eyes are really key to e

Ink MishapI just picked up a bottle of ink and turned it to try and see how much ink was in it. As it happens, it was nearly full, and the lid wasn't on correctly. Ink spilled.Ink Mishap1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was at my desk with all the new pages of Roommates: Kings War spread out in front of me.
Someone or something out there loves us, because despite a spectacular spill, ink went only on my hands, the chair leg, my leg, the discard papers on top of my pile of unused paper, and the half-inch space on my desk between pages.
Not a drop on the comic.
I'm deliriously grateful and amused.

Walt Disney, John Pomeroy, and meWhat do all three of us have in common? Animation, of course. But as far as this posting goes, there are two seperate bits of info I'm giving you:Walt Disney, John Pomeroy, and me2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) I just saw this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAl9P4T12Rs&featurelayer_embedded to a much loved video of Walt Disney talking about "art style". I as a part of some Disneyland show he did for TV way back when, but it is one of THE BEST looks at the individuality of the artists at the studio back then. Its one of the few times that Disney acknowledges how many different styles reside in the animation studio and that they must all melve together to create one vision. But also contribute their "pieces of uniqueness" in the creation of the ultimate style of a film. It also includes the famous clip, "Four artists paint a tree" that is the second half of the video and plays out all that he says before. A MUST SEE FOR ANY ARTIST!
2) Just last night, I did a podcast interview with leg

First off, we just wanted to say that our hearts go out to the friends and families of those poor kids (and adults). What happened today was a terrible, terrible thing. I have no idea what went through that person's head that made him want to do that, but our deepest condolences go out to those involved in the shooting.
Please be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
And yes, we are back to giving away a free key. This week we will be giving away two free keys to one person. The catch is, you have to give away the second key to someone else! A friend, a family member, etc. Because it's the holidays and giving is a wonderful thing

SpeechlessSeriously. The sheer horrifying nature of the internet has left me speechless for now.Speechless2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in a free country, where freedom of speech is an important matter. A long while ago, when I was still young and at school, we learned how to do a proper discussion in class. We were learned that provocation isn't that bad to get a message across, but that you should always have at least some respect for the people you discuss with, and talk with them with calmness and reason. If you lose your temper, you lose the argument. That's what I've learned.
The reactions I got on my last journal, however, have left met both sad and speechless. Because I'm unable to grasp how people can be so downright insulting towards a fellow human being. To a member of the same website....
My journal wasn't meant to tell people how much I hate fanartist. Because... I don't really hate them. I just feel sad about how hard it is to get attention for original work in the sea of fanart ou

Making Happyit's an odd concept, when you think about it. Someone once told me that I shouldn't look for happiness, but instead contentment.Making Happy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think that's the wrong goal, at the end of the day.
Life is all about doing what you love and loving doing it. I recently read an article titled "21 Tips to Keep Your Shit Together When You're Depressed" and it had me thinking a lot about the ways I choose to deal with my own life. Here are some of the things I've learned through trial and error (and error and erroranderrorerrorerror.)
Find what makes you special and never let it go. Even when you're convinced there's nothing that sets you apart, there's something that you love and something that you connect to on a deeply emotional level. Never let that go. That is your identity.
Don't become reliant on one person or thing because life has a habit of being unstable. No matter how much you may care about someone or something, it's unfair to them and yourself to count on
Hinata Changed History!The moment Hinata’s hand made impact with Naruto’s cheek, the moment he was awakened out of the impending darkness illuminating from a hand out stretched to him. That moment, the parallel between Naruto and Obito separated at a cross roads and the multitude of mistakes that Obito made out of the lonely confines of unrequited love’s woes ceased relevance to Naruto’s character.Hinata Changed History!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hinata is the one that saved Naruto from Obito’s fate. She is a factor, an option, a person, Obito never had. Obito never was graced with a Hinata. She stood between a breaking point within Naruto, she picked up the pieces of his grief, and once again ignited the passion and belief in himself in front of adversity, in the middle of a war that would determine the fate of all either one of them has ever known.
Kishimoto is stressing the pain Obito felt over the loss of Rin to show how tragically not letting go and moving forward can be.
He also showed that Naruto knew Sakura would never

remedies for those suffering from writer's blockI was gonna title this "prompt journal" but since I'm listing full-fledged strategies and I'm weird you get this lovely little thing, my own personal Chicken Soup for the Literary Constipated. These are all tactics I use frequently or thought would be fun.remedies for those suffering from writer's block2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Create the prettiest, most unique imagery you can imagine and then write a poem around those words and phrases. (I once wrote a whole poem around the phrase cereal box savior )
2. Write dedications you plan on never letting anyone see. It can range from two lines to twenty stanzas, but sit down and tell everyone what you think of them in as poetic a way as you can. This is really cathartic and a good practice for those who don't write dedications well (*cough* me)
3. Write a diary entry in verse. Take your own emotions and stories and fictionalize them; make them close enough to the truth that it's easy to write but far enough from yourself that you still feel it's beautiful. This is also really cathartic.
4. Take a com
RIP Diane Disney MillerEarlier today Walt Disney's daughter, Diane Disney Miller passed away. She was 79 years old.RIP Diane Disney Miller1 year ago in Personal More Like This
From Disney Blogs:
"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Diane Disney Miller and our thoughts are with her family during his difficult time. As the beloved daughter of Walt Disney and one of his inspirations for creating Disneyland, she holds a special place in the history of The Walt Disney Company and in the hearts of fans everywhere. She will be remembered for her grace and generosity and tireless work to preserve her father’s legacy, and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Diane was a fierce guardian of her father’s legacy who never hesitated to set the record straight, opening The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco to bring her father’s fascinating story to life. In our many conversations over the years, Diane’s unique and special perspective about her father only deepened my considerable appreciation for him. Diane was incredibly ge
