I needed a new personal animation project and my friend and I just went through a marathon of past Game of Throne seasons. So I decided to do little scenes from the tv show, but I wanted them to appear as the animals that represent their houses.
My thought was semi cartoony, Kung Fu Panda style, but mixed with the off kelter realism of the old Wind in the Willows shows. Here are some early sketches.
This link was being passed around on the Women in Animation eletter. A bittersweet story of how Laika studios was born through back office dealings, poor management and unabashed nepotism. And I had no idea the term “claymation” is a legally trademarked term.

The Wind Rises
Just saw this movie. A beautiful reflection of the fleeting moments in life and the passion to accomplish dreams.
Such a beautiful scene! One of the best Miyazaki films, so brilliant in character portrayal, symbolism, and Existentialism. IMHO, it should have won the Academy, although I feel the controversy over the hero being basically a weapons inventor affected the vote, in addition to the rumor that most academy members don’t even bother with animated films.
Within 15 minutes of the movie, I almost cried like three times….
Work is kinda slow right now, so I started working on the new cover for the second Omnibus. Something creepy and Dante’s Inferno inspired!
