I was uploading a new Magical Things video this morning when something caught my eye on the Youtube home page. A new animated short by Josiah Brooks!
If you’re unfamiliar with his work, I highly recommend checking out his library of digital and animated creations. His work is incredibly inspiring, and also incredibly supportive to all of those out there who want to learn how to animate like a pro in no time!
His latest cartoon is remarkably stunning, touching, and heartfelt. A true masterpiece of modern creations. Have a look.
Death is something most of us have a fear of. Fear of loss and passing into the next, without completing everything that we originally pictured ourselves wanting.
Yet, sometimes Death comes without a moments warning, and there is no time to prepare. And sometimes the preparation is for naught, when there is nobody to listen, and nobody to care.
The fact that you’re reading this shows that you’re paying attention. You are one of the few. But keep your eyes open, and your mind open too, and the gifts of wisdom will come to you, instead of passing through.
