This weeks Colour Collective color was Mars Violet so it reminded me of the color of mud. Then I remembered a lesser known fairy tale called “The Pig Brother”. Story goes since the little boy kept his room dirty, the fairy told him to go find his brother, while she fixed his room. He talks to a squirrel, a wren, and a cat asking if they were his brothers. They deny they are his brothers because they are clean. Along comes a pig, which the boy tries to avoid asking the question to, and the pig tells him that they are brothers. The fairy shows up and asks if the little boy would like to live like his brother the pig. The little boy says no, so he makes a deal with the fairy to keep his room clean and he wont live with his brother the pig.
Thank you everyone that has been following my posts. It means a lot to me to know that there are people that are interesting in my work.
I’ve been so busy lately that it only seems like I can do a quick sketch here and there. I’ve been really wanting to work on something more polished, but working a full time job in the morning, teaching two nights a week, and working on a personal animated short has kept me pretty busy. But for those of you who dont know I’m currently directing an animated short called “Cauldron Bubbles”. Story and Concept was created as my Graduate Final Project.
If anyone knows of any animators with intermediate to advanced skill level please have them contact me. I have set a deadline to have all shots completed by the end of this Spring semester. My contact info is on the link to the page for the short.
Again thank you all for the kind words and encouragement 😉
