The Best Skin + Intersection of Arts

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 18, 2016, 4:54 PM




This is still my favorite journal skin. Also, Dum-Dums are great and you can't convince me otherwise.

If anyone is out there (hello), what do you think about the intersection of arts? I'm talking about the ways that writing can complement painting, or photography can complement animation, or any combination of any arts.

It's something I've been thinking about a lot, because I'm noticing it here and there. Running around snapping photos has consistently been helpful in new ways of thinking about composition in other mediums, animation has been helpful in getting better and more active gestures into still pieces, and so on. 

So all of this leads me to the question of how worth it is to anyone else to have a hobby in another discipline (because although we're all artists, we don't all do the same thing). Does it make sense to spend time developing skills in other areas instead of focusing all of your energy into one? Something something, "T-shaped individuals." Is it faster, or easier, or more user-friendly to learn these skills from a variety of sources, or does it make more sense to learn it all through the same medium? Can it all be learned through the same medium? 

And while we're doing all of this question-asking, why is the underwire in every bra ever so sharp? What is that? No one wants to be stabbed in the boob.

Someday I'll find answers to all of these very important questions.

Went to school for animation, do a lot of illustration, and enjoy a bit of writing on the side. Talk to me about anything (especially your deep, dark secrets), and don't be afraid to critique my work.
