Hmm interesting... half of Deviantart think that comments are most important, yet we experience constant decline of feedback.
I wonder how many of you guys saw Cowboy Bebop? To me it's one of the masterpieces of storytelling, design and animation coated with exceptional soundtrack. A rare case of a perfect match, where everything fits into place from beaten-up spaceships to jazzy tunes. Beyond Ghibli recently put a really well thought retrospective on this animation classic, taking a look at it's rocky road to release and the lasting impact it's had on the industry:



Did you know that [film director] Shinichiro Watanabe's brief was only to create something with spaceships for Bandai to sell toys? And three episodes later Bandai bailed out, realising it won't be able to sell these spaceship toys.

Decades later we still haven't surpassed Bebop's magic. Even Watanabe's own Space Dandy (2013) didn't come much closer. It's fun and crazy sure, but you can't compare the amplitude and impact. Perhaps Firefly animation could do the magic, but that's another story...
Recently I stumbled onto a video by Trent Kaniuga talking about artist burnout and how to refuel the fire. If you stuck somewhere along your creative journey / professional career, or maybe in the middle of recharging your batteries, I recommend you to check out Trent's thoughts. The basic idea is to reconnect with the kid inside of you. For the younger audience this probably wouldn't make much sence, but for grown-ups it should ring a bell:



Over the years I watched how my friends and colleagues have literally vanished. Technically some of them are still painting, but you don't hear of them much. Does it mean that our creativity fades out just like youth? I don't think so, more likely it's a shift of priorities when people put family, job security etc. onto first place. Sure, older dudes can turn back into kids while heavy drinking, playing games, watching movies etc., but in the end the adult side still prevails.

So what do you guys think? Is it possible to maintain both child's naïveté and adult's responsibility?
