Thinking about Nostalgia



One of the things ALAN will post is (at least one) animation – and as animation is notoriously arduous (24 fps ffs) I need to make a start, now. These are just VERY rough sketches of ideas, thinking about nostalgic cartoons* – I have sketchbooks filled with characters, I’m just posting a tiny bit here as a visual incentive to DO THIS…

* Nostalgia – a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one’s life.. sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time


Cartoons (I’m talking about Disney, really) were an essential part of my formative years, they shaped the way I viewed the world, relationships, gave me hope and dreams, and comfort.  Now I’m an adult

I kinda wish I never believed in fairytale happy endings..

and have thus designated my life to that of an eternal pessimist.
