Secret World of Arrietty
Yesterday I went to the zoo and tried doing some watercolors again aaand... well something is lost in translation. Is it possible to make watercolors less girly? Probably, but I sure as hell don't know how to do it.
Speaking of girly, after making these dandy watercolors I went to go see Studio Ghibli's new flick The Secret World of Arrietty and kill whats left of my masculinity. Yes, a grown man with no child or female acquaintance in tow to mask his love for pretty pretty cartoons (flickers eyelashes like a dandy) but boy is this film pretty. Just take a look at the attached picture of the leaves. I'd recommend the film just for the beautifully painted environments alone. The story is not Ghibli's best but probably worth a rent.
Also shown is a photo of a sleeping tiger balancing a ghost water bottle on its hip.
