"I am a big lover of Mexican folk art and the reason I love it is because it’s very accessible art. I consider it art by the people for the people, but it’s also is a mirror of who we are. […] I eventually came up with the idea of having some of the characters made out of wood because growing up I loved wooden toys, with all their flaws and imperfections. The film takes place post Mexican revolution, it was a hard time. The bad guys in the movie are made out of metal. The idea is that when they went to the army they put metal on themselves but never took it off, and they don’t have any guns because they’re the weapons themselves. In this world, when you’re born, the wood you’re made out of is really smooth and as you grow older the wood starts aging. Wood is life, and there’s also a tree of life that symbolizes it. The movie is dripping with symbolism and magic realism.” - Jorge Gutierrez

About Frozen



Okay, I have had a couple thoughts about this movie boiling up for a while…they are observations, things I saw and experienced, more than actual theories of my own, so please bear with me.

The interesting thing about Frozen is how polarizing it is. People seem to mostly either adore it, or they absolutely hate it with a scorn that seems to go beyond the film’s faults.

I saw it, and I enjoyed it, but I did feel it had some story problems, and many other issues have been raised that make some sense to me, as well. My opinion of the film isn’t the issue.

"I was at an event with some long-time animators once, and they all would not stop gossiping about how horrible Frozen was. They hated the plot, they hated the characters, and a lot of their anger seemed to be aimed at the fact that it was a success. Many comments about how the guy hero was a goof, and the other male a bastard. The gist seemed to be…this isn’t how we have always done these films.  And now that it’s a hit, it means our way (the traditional male-driven story) may die out. 

They were angry because a girl movie (their term) was a much bigger success than most of the boy movies they had worked on recently. And so every tiny flaw became a HUGE thing. It was weird to watch.”

why you should make a webcomic and why you can make a webcomic


why should you make a webcomic?

  1. it’s regular drawing practice
  2. you get to draw and develop the universe your OCs live in
  3. you could draw your OCs making out with context
  4. see number 3

how can you make a webcomic?

  1. make a new tumblr
  2. install this theme https://www.tumblr.com/theme/37061
  3. post comics as you would on any other tumblr they show up on their own webcomic site

what if nobody sees my webcomic :(

  1. too bad you got to draw your OCs making out and nobody can appreciate your artistic genius obviously the world is not ready for this webcomic genius
