Tim Burton received this handmade cake from his animation team and it’s basically the coolest shit ever.
A cake that’s a zoetrope!
Pronounced "ska-lya." Champion navel-gazer, veteran pseudo-fictioneer. Expect dinosaurs (and other paleobeasties), aquatic life (the weirder the better), Doctor Who (all sorts), Spider-Man (original flavor) and whatever else takes my fancy. 95% reblogs, 5% pointless text posts.
I try to tag for common triggers, but don't hesitate to ask if you need something added.
I finally got to see a final version of Lovely yesterday! I’m pretty excited about how it came out. Here are some paintings I did just for the book.
I love the story of the Monkey King, I grew up with it, so these paintings are my interpretations.
You can buy LOVELY online at Amazon, or you can pick up a copy form me at SDCC!
When you’re old, all you want to do is stare at the scenery. It’s so strange. I’ve never felt so peaceful before.
Gifs before gifs
We all love gifs - those highly entertaining movable feasts that are so popular on Tumblr. Here is one, but it is one with a history that predates the internet. You are looking at a gif of a phenakistiscope, a 19th-century revolving paper disk imprinted with a series of drawings, which was spun so as to produce a moving image. The device was invented around 1840 by Joseph Plateau. Dancing figures, jumping monkeys, acrobats, and figures jumping into the mouths of lions: Plateau’s stroboscopic disks produced highly entertaining mini-movies, like our modern gifs, be it over a century and a half before animation movies were first made. When we look at a gif on Tumblr, let’s remember that the technique of producing such moving images made up from a small batch of individual pictures dates back to a pre-digital world - to the days before movies, photography and digital cameras.
Trippy as heck.
"Think about me when you’re living your life one day after another, all in a neat pattern. Think about the homeless traveller and his old police box, with his days like crazy paving."
Project completion! This is the longest personal project I’ve done.
Shout out to Big Finish, the audios really fuelled me through this.
Make sure to watch this one on Vimeo so you can see it at proper resolution.
BIG HONKIN’ TOONAMI ANNOUNCEMENT!
Hey everybody! Just wanted to drop you all a line and announce a couple pieces of Toonami news.
First, we are proud to announce that Toonami will be WORLD PREMIERING the new series from Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) and Studio BONES (FMA, Soul Eater, many more), SPACE DANDY! SPACE DANDY is a 26 episode series that will be premiering in the U.S. BEFORE it premieres in Japan (yep, you read that right)! Details on that to follow soon.
Oh, and when will it premiere? Sooner than you think- January 4th, at 11:30 PM.
"Did I just read 11:30?"
Yep, you read that right. Space Dandy will kick off an expanded 6-1/2 HOUR TOONAMI broadcast every Saturday. Toonami Faithful, we got our extra half hour!
Oh, you’re STILL not satisfied? Fine. We have some other great news that will be coming in the next few weeks, but until then we’ll drop one more little tidbit: In December, Toonami will take a break from our regular schedule and have a bit of holiday fun, with three weeks in a row of a movie special to kick off the block! What movies, you ask? Well, you’ll have to wait a bit on that. :)
Finally- if you have more questions about all this, GOOD- ask them here! We’ll be doing our monthly Toonami Q&A this Sunday from 11am et, to whenever we hit the tumblr post limit! Remember, your question could end up on our monthly on-air Tumblr Q&A session with Tom and Sara.
WHEW- okay. Keep your eyes locked right here over the next few weeks for more details on all of this, as well as some other VERY exciting developments we can’t talk about yet. And in the mean time, do make sure you check us out on November 2nd, when we’ll be airing some fun little surprises in the daylight savings hour (2am)!
WE WILL NEVER STOP
Love, the Toonami Crew.
