Brave 2012

I don't know if I'm super late to knowing about this. I think I might be, but who cares! I'm a pixar child, so I was ecstatic to learn that there's a new movie ready to be released next summer 2012, 'Brave'! The last kid's movie I've seen recently was oddly enough, 'Secret of the Kells'. A really superb movie, adorable and beautifully animated and drawn. I wonder how pixar's 'brave' will own up to being influenced by an Irish/Celtic aesthetic.

If you haven't seen 'Secret of the Kells', I highly recommend it!

Chinese Inspired Paper Cutting Prints

I've always really loved the art of ornate Chinese paper cutting, or the actual term: "Jianzhi". The shapes are so simple yet the play on positive negative space makes a whole web of intricate designs. So here are my Jianzhi inspired fox prints!

Sitting Fox
Sleeping Fox
Curious Fox
Attentive Fox

Naturally, I picked the coloring to be red. :)

Artist: Cristina from Sombras Blancas Art

Cristina is a talented self-taught artist residing in Spain. Her work is so entrancing! I love the line work she mixes together in her pieces, very weighted and textured, yet simple and clean.

My favorite is the snail! She's mainly a print and paper artist, but she also sells brooches and pins of her work. You can check out her etsy shop here.

The Secret World of Arrietty!

It was announced recently that Studio Ghibli's newest film, "The Secre World of Arriettt" is going to be released here in the states on February 17th 2012, by Walt Disney! How devastating! Waiting until next year is too long!

I didn't want to spoil myself by researching too in-depth into the storyline, all I know is that the main little girl lives under the floorboards of a house...>__>
