Then this happened.
Uuh… it’s hard to explain, it’s a burden that just appears out of nowhere and fucks you up for days. Ignoring it is not easy. It takes over you and even tends to distort your perception of reality turning it into a living nightmare. It’s awful and terrifying.
The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.
The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.
Hi there!Today I want someone to help Anghel’s world.You know I announced Absolute ZERO, an Anghel’s AU manga release in English before though, still I keep you waiting. I’m so sorry. I don’t have enough time because of Hatoful HD (I believe it will be really fun!) and summer comiket.So I decided to ask someone to rewrite my manga into English. You don’t have to translate Japanese into English because the great Hatoful translator team have already done. I’ll send manga pages with blank balloons and translated English lines to you. Only you have to do is copy & paste lines and draw sound effect and onomatopoeia.Here is the detail;-I need two AZ saviour this time. AZ is 40 pages manga, so each of them have to do 20 pages.-You’re required to have Photoshop or anything else that can manipulate PSD files.-It’s better to have Illustrator too but it’s not necessary.-People who have some scanlation experience are welcome, however, it’s OK if this is the first time for you.-I’ll never offer tight and serious deadline date.-I’ll pay some to you via paypal.If you’re interested in saving AZ, please email email@example.comAlso, would you tell me your opinion about scanlation text font? What kind of font are clear and easy to read?Perhaps I’ll put want ad for my projects again in future to have much time to do my own works,script writing, programming and drawing etc. I’m considering crowdfunding too.
COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey
Part I: Ancient Mesopotamia
I don’t know how many of you caught this, but I totally had a little segment in last night’s episode of COSMOS, “The Immortals”! It’s about a tremendous drought that destroyed the ancient civilzations of Mesopotamia! FOX approached me about doing this little piece a few months ago and I sprung at the opportunity! If you didn’t know, I am a big fan of SCIENCE and I was so pumped to be a part of this incredible series and to have animated a piece to Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s (my hero!) narration and Ann Druyan’s writing! I am so thankful to Kara Vallow, Brent Woods and Allie Crane for inviting me to take part in this project and being so supportive throughout the production! Also I had an amazing crew to help me create the animation - long-time collaborator Stephane Coedel who was the lead Animator & Compositor, the incredible Stephen Vuillemin who did character animation, and my amazing sister Emily Haidri who produced the spot for us! A real dream job!
Here is a LINK to the full episode if you want to watch (our segment starts around 26:40)!
