colin-vian: Michael Carson, Cornered, oil on board, 40 x 30
“This is NOT good. This movement is no good…he cannot run like this. Whoever drew this doesn’t understand it at all no matter how i tell it. How to move the muscles is the issue here. If this point were to be clearly understood, you’d see these angles of the thighs are so wrong. This reflects the creator’s personality well: Ready to get back (home) all the time…Whoever draws like this had better be dead, really. To think the amount of time a person spent making this, and the attitude towards life. That’s really what I hate the most!" - Hayao Miyazaki
I cannot imagine the shame I’d feel having one of the gods of animation literally shitting on my work while having to begrudgingly revise the entire scene in a well-known documentary. But I know the feeling dealing with revising scenes, even in storyboards. I wonder who’s work that was that he had to revise? Awesome to see Miyazaki-san in action though….

Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008. It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there. It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them. A larger work gets talked about from time to time. It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories. Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
