Remembering Disney Adventures comics.....

Cancelled. That sucks. I remember picking this magazine up all the time when I was in elementary school. Or to be precise, bugging my mother to buy it for me when we were on a grocery run. :D I gave them all away when I reached high school, and I kind of regret it now. I never would have thought I'd...

Yasujiro Ozu....

This is a long post, but I'm feeling kind of down and I feel like droning about him after watching the documentary, "Talking with Ozu", where these directors talked about their first Ozu film and how he influenced them. Hopefully this will put a little more life into the Cinematheque forum. I was ha...

The Lives of Others..

If this is still playing near any of you guys, then check it out soon before it leaves the theatres. This is an excellent EXCELLENT film. One of the best I've seen in a very long time. I went in not sure what to expect, but it was better that way so that I was able to appreciate every turn and twist...

Well, I'm definitely considering both now. I'd love to go to NY or CA. Though Fullerton sounds alot more appealing with the kinds of programs and job connections that come with it.

Any other schools that have Graduate programs in Illustration?

Visual art graduate programs...illustration and such...

Right now my plan is to pursue an Associate's Degree in Illustration at the community college where I am currently enrolled while also working. But due to recent events, I've been also thinking about looking towards pursuing a Master's at a different school in an actual graduate program....preferabl...

"Love" sounds about right to me. I picked up Flight 1 at random from the store one day. At the time, I was in a terrible funk, angry at people, at my job, just everything. But reading the stories in Flight was suddenly able to make me forget everything for a few moments. It was the kind of satisfact...

Ditto! Who knows, maybe our paths will cross. I'd love to meet other travelers on the way. Call me silly, but my enthusiasm for traveling came from my recent interest in Zen Buddhism as well as reading Craig Thompson's Carnet Du Voyage. I hope to have a bookful of sketches once I come back to the st...

I just watched Fantasia 2000 again recently and was surprised to discover how much I like it. Aside from those celebrity intros (skip!), many of the shorts are wonderful. The Gershwin one is so clever and Donald Duck of all characters made me tear up... almost. Definitely worth a second viewing if ...

Evil Dead 2. Heh heh. I'll be seeing that this weekend in the theatre. Groooovy. :D I also remember how sad I was on opening day, when I was at the theater with only about 10 other people and they messed up the anamorphic projection, stretching the screen for a good half of the film. ......dude, tha...
