To be creative is a way of thinking. When you observe what’s around you, what are the things you pick up and store in your memory?

This was an image of the 2013 World photography awards.
I’ve just shown it to you for about 10 seconds. What do you still remember from it?
The pigeons that fly around? The fact that these pigeons were white? The notion of all the Blue in the image , so well in the building as in the clothing of the women. Or did you remember the two kids that seem to be the cause of the birds fleeing the scene.
Someone with an interest towards architecture probably lingered his eyes at the building and recognized it’s style culture and perhaps knows of it’s build method. While someone with an interes
Miyazaki drops some writing knowledge"Lauded animated film director Hayao Miyazaki says anime suffers when the people making it can't stand observing real people.Miyazaki drops some writing knowledge3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hayao Miyazaki spoke out against the anime industry in a recent television interview. He recently retired, making The Wind Rises his final film, with many of his previous works such as Spirited Away becoming popular even outside of Japan. According to Miyazaki the quality of anime is suffering because industry staff is made up of "otaku," or people who obsessively love anime.
The term "otaku" has a rather negative connotation in Japan and is used more to classify fans who obsess over something (this need not be anime). Miyazaki's specific concerns are over the lack of attention paid to people in real life. He said people in the industry "don't spend time watching real people" and can be characterized as "humans who can't stand looking at other humans." He then called the industry "full of otaku."

I am guessing it kind of depends on the type of capacity the support Satelight is providing for the series, but to me it appears that the key animation production will be done stateside.
I mean I enjoyed The Boondocks but I wouldn't call it anime, and this would probably be placed in a similar sphere of traditional western animation meant for more mature audiences." - Revya The World Eater, Kotaku
"If it's made primarily by Japanese people for a primarily Japanese audience, it's anime. Otherwise, no, it's an animated series with anime influences.
In this case, I'm leaning toward the latter, much like Avatar/Korra (which, as far as I know, actually did receive "assistance" from a Japanese studio, which is apparently why a lot of fans are quick to call it an "anime"), but it really depends on just how big Satelight's involvement in this will be. There have certainly been "anime" (or things that I would consider "anime") that have been directed by Westerners, or
A letter to everyoneA letter to everyone3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I thought i'd share something with you, going along the same theme as one of my previous journals, - about who you admire. I've decided to do some letters to a certain handful of people who i really love to thank them for sharing their talents and inspiring me. I hardly expect to hear anything back, and they probably get buried in oodles of fanmail every day, but I know that when i get lovely messages from you lot, it makes me exceedingly happy!
This brings me to my first letter, - which i realized today, is actually the most important of them all..
And it's to you.
To every single person who follows, occasionally visits or even just ghosts past my work with a pleasant thought. Thank you. You guys are the -sole- reason that i've managed to keep Crankrats going for as long as it has. Every message i get from new and old watchers alike, be it a simple compliment, a crit, a suggestion or question is time and effort taken out of your own lives to make,
Workaholism and Why It SucksOver the past few months, I've been struggling hard with my addiction to work. Do I need income to live? Of course I do. But beyond the work that earns me money, I am constantly making more work for myself - setting impossible goals for Mechanima, creating a list of about 30 plush I want to create before August, struggling to say "no" when people ask for favor after favor. Work can be just as bad for you as reliance on smoking or alcohol, and at times, at least in my case, it's a way to blurt out thoughts I would rather not have to think about (sounds a lot like drinking already, eh?).Workaholism and Why It Sucks1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was raised by a workaholic father. He was hard on us as kids - getting a B in school was a reason for shame. From a young age, I was always productive. In elementary school, I was restricted to one half-hour television show per week, one hour of video games per month on average, and the rest of my time was spent drawing, making crafts, and cleaning the yard and house. I was raised with a strict

I'm not George WashingtonOne of my favorite time periods to study is the Revolutionary War and the founding of the United States. I'm sure this is mostly because I'm American, and I really loved my American history teacher in high school.I'm not George Washington2 years ago in Personal Journal More Like This
But it also fascinated me how these handful of guys worked together to come up with a Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and an entire structure for running a country that has stood the test of time, though certainly isn't perfect.
I did my senior year term paper on Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of Treasury, mainly because I wanted to focus on someone who was instrumental, but perhaps an unsung hero. In doing so, I gained a greater appreciation not only for him, but for a hero whose praise is widely known, George Washington.
What interested me most was that Washington grew up as a farmer, and wanted nothing more than to return to life as a simple farmer in retirement. This general who fought in wars, negotiated foreign policy, and held the
