I'm an animation buff...and somehow have never ever heard of "The Thief and the Cobbler" before today.

30 years in the making, animated at 24fps, and the single minded ambition of one man directing what he wanted when he wanted (until the movie companies took it away from him). HOLY COW.

So, I saw Wonder Woman. I enjoyed it. Loved that they called her Diana through the whole movie. Thought she was a little too naive. Liked Chris Pine in something for once.

That's about all I have. I couldn't get to into it because the movie messed with my dysphoria hard and knocked me out of action for about two days.

There are good movies I don't watch much because of that. Unfortunately, this will be one of them.

Finally watching the Thief and the Cobbler. Absolutely loving Tack's design, animation, and the fact that the tacks he holds in his mouth are his...well...mouth.

Finished Thief and the Cobbler. How did I miss this?! It's AMAZING!

Well, the finished parts are. You can definitely tell when the other animation company came in to finish the film.

On watching it, though, I definitely did get the feel that the story and plot were secondary to "I want to animate like you've never seen before." Shots and shots and shots of grandious animation barely attached to the plot. Animation that was plot centric was mostly workprints and The Other Company finishing his shots.

It's glorious animation, but I think it did the creator in.

I've signed my paperwork for a return to work on June 27th.

About two years ago, I wrote about how I was taking my comics and moving them from a dedicated hobby to a "second job." I was fairly successful at it, pushing out a good number of comics after that, only stopped when the "first job" took the energy out of me (and actually stopped later when my life snowballed out of control in late 2016).

Given recent events and revelations, I'm doing something a bit more with my creative works. They're now my "first job."

Comics return in July.
