Why I'm Scared to Call Myself an Animal Lover

     I've always been haunted by the dead. Not the paranormal kind in tv shows and movies, but by the millions of deaths that humans have neglected, despite the common knowledge of it pressed in our minds. In recent events, particularly at 10:52 p.m. tonight, I was faced with this haunting again by a message on facebook. But this time I feel that I must express this guilt before I start shoving it in again.

  Articles involving mistreated, abused, and killed animals I've tried to avoid, to be honest. But its not because I don't care, its because I didn't want to be affected by it. And I think a lot of people are ignorant about it too because of the same thing. We play innocent and cover our eyes and ears from the blood, tears, and scream that these poor beings cry out. 

Even now I still have a hard time wiping away the guilt. The world might be changing for the best but sometimes it feels like it isn't enough. I still hope for the day that animals won't need to cower in fear and be treated with such brutality. I hope that people can become more active against animal cruelty. I'm aware I'm at fault too. I do care for them greatly, and I know I need to stop running away from the reality that these animals face everyday.

Break Time doodling

Took a break from animating, thought I'd share some sketches. :)

2010 Short Animation Film -"A Fishy Predicament"- in Progress

     One of the things that has my focus at the moment is my current short animation in the works for my class. Really excited on how it'll turn out and at the same time dreading (and enduring) the hours and hours of drawings, inkings, and paintings to come. Already on my 3rd work day, and with just a month to work on it, I just hope everyone in class gets through this with awesome stuff for the showing. 

Hopefully I'll have time to post some artworks from the film and from life in general here. I'd love to hear what you might think/suggest!

and also,
Art-51 class, 加油! (keep it up!)
