There are so many great characters, colors, and textures to be found on Brigette Barrager’s portfolio! She’s a veteran of both Pixar and Disney, and it looks like she’s about to steal all the rest of the freelance jobs away from the rest of us. If it means more great stuff, I can live with that!

Michel Gagné’s Sensology is a brilliant visualization of jazz music, and a direct descendant of the work of Normal McLaren.

It was the work on this piece that led Pixar to commission Gagné to design and animate the visualization of taste in Ratatouille.

Robby Ingebretsen:

This is really neat. It’s a very very early digital 3D rendered film (family lore is that it’s the first, ever). It looks old because it is. It was created in 1972 by Ed Catmull (the founder of Pixar) and Fred Parke with a little help from my dad. I also think that this is the only digital copy of it.

“In a Word: PERSIST.”

cameronmoll:

This morning I tweeted about a lack of inspiration and having to trudge through it. In response, @brainhofj tweeted about the following:

Letter by Austin Madison

This handwritten letter is by Austin Madison, Pixar animator of Rex, the green dinosaur in the Toy Story series (among other characters he’s designed). Madison’s letter is a submission to the Animators Letters Project, and it so eloquently described what I was attempting to say in 140 characters.

Here’s page one:

I, like many of you artists out there, constantly shift between two states. The first (and far more preferable of the two) is white-hot, “in the zone” seat-of-the-pants, firing on all cylinders creative mode. This is when you lay your pen down and the ideas pour out like wine from a royal chalice! This happens about 3% of the time.

The other 97% of the time I am in the frustrated, struggling, office-corner-full-of-crumpled-up-paper mode. The important thing is to slog diligently through this quagmire of discouragement and despair. Put on some audio commentary and listen to the stories of professionals who have been making films for decades going through the same slings and arrows of outrageous production problems.

In a word: PERSIST.

Page two continues with canny and inspirational advice for those of us — actually all of us — trudging through the creative blocks that fill most of our days. At the end of today’s workday, I’m happy to report that I persisted, knocked out lots of mediocre stuff, and then cranked out a couple above-average ideas towards the end.

Thanks, Austin.

Pixar’s sequels have done so well at the box office that they are currently working on a sequel to their very first short film from 1988.

"It Gets Better" — Love, Pixar (via PixGetsBetter) A message of hope from the employees at Pixar Animation Studios. 

One of us posted this on our Twitter feed, and I can’t help but add it here too. I watched this and got really choked up, same as any time I watch any of the It Gets Better testimonials, because years ago I also considered suicide as a closeted teen. 

So I’d like to issue a call of action to my fellow LGBT illustrators, comic creators, designers, and artists: let’s make our contribution to this project too. Get in touch, let’s make it happen. (Especially if you volunteer to edit the videos together!)
