Little birdie, meet bigg[er] birdie.
So whilst relaxing the amazing sunshine on a deck in Wpg Beach this weekend, I re-read "The Art of Up" from cover to cover in one day. I just absolutely LOVE the concept art, and hearing the voices of the artists and directors, learning how the story developed and what the ideas stemmed from. It always inspires me to see how something so beautiful and simple can grow from one quick sketch, or even a small comment someone makes. That's what I love so much about animation, you can share so much beauty about life in "cartoons"!
Aaaaaanyhoo, I did a quick watercolour of these birdies after reading the book. I felt so inspired, my head was full of ideas. Hopefully this week I can try to get some more out :)
