Open letter to Rick Mereki and Team

I suppose this requires a letter as well, because they are a source of inspiration through this video. Letter below.

Dear Rick Mereki and Team,

I wish….
I wish……
I wish I would make something like this kind of travel happen or myself and those I love.
Inspiring, beautiful, fleeting, epic.
You have fired up my dream-state as my mind wanders where you have already been.

Well done, good sirs and madams…WELL DONE.

= a trip of a lifetime. move, eat, learn”

The Magic of Ari Gibson and Jason Pamment

I have been wanting to post about this animation for a while – who knew it was sitting in my drafts folder for so long!
This lovely work was directed and animated by Ari Gibson at Mechanical Apple.

Background art by Jason Pamment
“My name’s Jason, I’m a freelance art director and illustrator based in Adelaide, South Australia. For over 7 years I’ve been collaborating with amazing artists to create entertaining animated films and commercials. ”

The Cat Piano, (mentioned in an old post, you might remember HERE) caught my eye years ago. He directed it with the PRA’s Eddie White, won the 2009 Australian Film Industry award for Best Short Animation, was accepted into the Annecy International Animation Festival and was short-listed for the Academy Awards. Dang. Right?

Musician is of course, Gotye


Partly Cloudy, an adorable animation

So cute it made my eyes glisten at work!! How could I have missed this? I guess the mistake I made was not seeing the Pixar movie “U”P in theaters since this was shown before it. Also no one told me about it (glares at whoever that might have been). But, I accidentally came upon in down the rabbit hole of the internet…and if there are others like me who missed out on this, I share with you now. 🙂

Partly Cloudy is a Pixar CGI animated short film directed by Peter Sohn and produced by Kevin Reher.


Follow Your Harto

I have been a big fan of Hannah Hart for a while do to her Drunk Kitchen videos with their adorable hilarity. She has inspired me to do my own set of Drinking and Drawing, which might happen or not – depends on friends and time – both of which can be hard to schedule.

Well, her latest video had to be shared immediately. It really spoke to me – really hit me at my core, ya know? So, enjoy  😉
