Paint and Its Grave Yard



I came up with a conclusion of why I want to make oil paint animation. It is a way to give paint justice. I document paint's movement and their life by camera. "I won't tell you how he died, I will tell you how he lived." Tom Cruise said in The Last Samurai. Yeah, exactly. For example, I feel Jackson Pollock's paintings look like hundreds of thousands of dead flies stick on huge sticky boards. The canvases are like grave yards for paints.

Well, this painting is another grave yard for my paints after my animation. Although I directly kill some of the paints right away without document them, and I feel guilty, but, that's life isn't it?( There are sacrifices..)



最近有個結論,為何我要做油畫動畫?
因為這樣使得油畫的顏料成為我導演的主角,他們是主角而不是我。動畫給了他們被記錄的機會,給了他們正義。

想一想,帕洛克的作品不就像是成千上萬的死蒼蠅被黏在巨大蒼蠅板上嗎?那些畫布成了顏料的葬身之地。

這張作品是我做完動畫之後的一做墳場,可是我心裡內疚的是,我在記錄之前還是直接扼殺了一些顏料。不過,這不就像是人生嗎?( 是有犧牲掉的。)

S. Monkey and T. Bean Story



For Tony and Susan's wedding. I am glad that they love it. It is on stand puppet animation.

My first time using Garage Band making all those sound effects. That was fun!

One of my favorite artists, James Jean's video ( pretty surprising)



Man, I am definitely going to see his show.

Also, today I went to Chicago's International Film Festival, Fear(s) of the Dark.
I have a blessing feeling that I can have my one concept art and also animate by myself. That is certainly the coolest thing!
