Hello! Mariela here! 18. Aspiring animator/storyteller from Puerto Rico. I like to draw and reblog things about art and stuff.
I hope you have an awesome day, you son of a gun!


Lucy Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann are Zim & Zou, a French studio based in Nancy. Giving a dynamic edge to three-dimensional art and installation, the duo prefers using with “real objects”, such as paper, rather than digital rendering on a computer, giving a fresh perspective to intricate works of paper sculptures and installations.

Teaser WIP of the film I’m working on!

A fan animated version of Kesha’s song “Die Young”

playing around in After Effects was fun, and I actually have quite a bit more animated, but I think it’ll be a while ‘til I show the rest of that attached too the music.

LIFE Magazine has released online 850 photos taken in November 1960 Hanna-Barbera studios during the early days of production on the Flintstones.

The photos include voice recording sessions with Mel Blanc (Barney) and Alan Reed (Fred), photos of Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera with their families, photos of the both of them working with writers, artists, and lots candids of all the various people who worked at the studio at the time. This is an amazing and unprecedented look into what it was like making cartoons in this time in history, really the find of the year for animation enthusiasts.

Above are only a couple. We see an female inker working on a cel of Fred, another photo of an inker working on a cel (at her home!), animator Carlo Vinci animating a scene, Bill Hanna having a barbecue with his family, and a few of the studio workers who had formed their own bowling league, “the Yogi Bears”.

Around April of last year my friend, Jamie Vickers, encouraged Ben Li and I to apply to animate on Masaaki Yuasa’s “Space Dandy” episode.  Yuasa-san was apparently looking for international animators and posted about it on his Facebook wall.  We turned in our reels and promptly got the gig.

I decided to only take on four shots just to feel it out and to make sure I got it all in on time. 

The Carpaccio animation and shadow passes weren’t used in the final cut, but I decided to include them for this post to show what was turned in and approved.  The rest of the drawings I did came through though!  Very exciting to see the final animation all cleaned up, colored and cut together.

Yuasa-san was very open to us using Flash to animate our shots.  The production took the final keys (genga’s), printed them out, retraced onto paper and inbetweened those drawings.  It’s a pretty wild pipeline, but it totally worked.  I am grateful to have experienced working under one of my most favorite directors, Masaaki Yuasa-san.  

If granted the opportunity I would like to do more animations for Yuasa-san and other overseas productions in the future.  For now I will continue working on my personal project that I aim to get done before the end of the year.
