The Bloom Tree

I hope everyone enjoyed their respective Valentine's Days. I made chocolate chip scones and tried to shape them like hearts, some of them ended up as less romantic organs, kidney shaped perhaps. 

Also, recently I went and saw
Persepolis with my comics class. I liked the comic and the movie, and it was a refreshing animation style, almost a moving comic. It's nice to see the expansion of possibilities of the medium. I feel like the animation industry in America will soon need to reinvent itself to keep up with the foreign advancements in technique and style. Tekkon Kinkreet is another notable movie I've seen recently, I wish there were more stills available online, the style is pretty breathtaking.

It's Oscars weekend and for the first time in a long time, I haven't seen many of the movies. I guess there's bigger things on our plates right now. :)

also i have a .avi file of tekkon kinkreet i think if you want some stills. you should look at "Mind Game" by the same studio, it is amazing if you have not seen it already.
