I am so glad someone made this cuz I’ve always wondered how the movement of the solar system might look as a whole….
BUT LOOK HOW EPIC THE SOLAR SYSTEM IS GUYS
PEOPLE DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY WE’RE NEVER IN THE SAME PLACE ONCE.
I WASN’T FUCKING KIDDING.
this is beautiful
this is mind blowing to think that each frame was drawn out by someone with pure talent
Kazuo Oga (various watercolour works c.1988)
Kazuo Oga is one of the most inconspicuously famous artists, which is inspirational in its own right by how humbling it is. You would think they were digital from an immediate approach, however upon closer inspection of the textures, lighting and layering it’s clear they’re perfectly hand crafter watercolour pieces.
His works, featured in the backgrounds of various Studio Ghibli films, are subtle enough to blend into the background of the films yet stand out alone as perfection of watercolour techniques and command of lighting.
Just considering there are scenes where the camera pans across his works for several long moments reflects the sublime quality of his work. And that he was able to develop enough artworks to supply several films with stunning backdrops is nothing short of breathtaking.
That’s a good word for it, “breathtaking”.
Lilo and stitch actually is the most depressing film that disney ever made. It’s literally about parents dying and a child being forced to raise her younger sister and about an alien coming and wrecking their house and having the fbi on their case only to show them true family and how to love each other when they feel so alone and really like no movie made me cry as a kid like this movie did.
… I am not sure what I’m looking at here.
Damn, I haven’t seen this movie in a while now.

And I just got this:
Here’s the plan:
Starting in spring 2013, and running for two years, there will be special movie theater screenings of The Last Unicorn all over the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, and Japan, with Peter S. Beagle at every show to help make each one a really special event.
Better yet: The source material being projected will be a brand-new Digital Master of the film produced exclusively for the tour, so each screening will look and sound spectacular.
Even better-er: All kinds of special new Last Unicorn-related merchandise is being created for the tour — action figures, jewelry, clothing, plush figures, ornaments, you name it — a whole cornucopia (obscure Greek mythology/Amalthea reference!) of cool stuff that only became possible, like the tour itself, when Peter and ITV began working together. Not everything will be available at the beginning of the tour, of course, because of design and manufacturing lead times. But everyone who comes to a screening will automatically become a Tour Member, and Members will get to buy new Tour merch online, even the Exclusive Stuff, any time they want while the tour is running. (Plus they’ll also get a discount on any other Peter S. Beagle books and materials.)
Where and when the screenings will be is still under development with our booking agent, so we can’t give out any details yet, though we hope to announce the first set of dates soon.
Meanwhile, if you want to put your hand up in the air and suggest a place the tour should come — a city or even a particular theater — just send a message to email@example.com. The more people we hear from in a given area, the sooner we’ll be there.Last Unicorn Publishing News: Big Changes Afoot
After several years of discussion and negotiation, Peter has just signed a revised Last Unicorn publishing deal with Penguin Books. It changes things in three big ways we wanted to share with you immediately.
1) The Last Unicorn is moving to a new publishing home. After the current Roc edition sells out, all future Penguin releases of The Last Unicorn will be done under their much more prestigious New American Library (NAL) imprint.
2) A new hardcover edition will be coming out in 2013. This hardcover (the first since 2007’s limited Barnes & Noble release) will definitely be available on the screening tour, at Peter’s personal appearances, and online through Conlan Press. It may also be generally available in bookstores, though that decision, along with the official release date, hasn’t been finalized yet. More news about this one soon.
3) Conlan Press now has the right to do special high-end collector’s editions of The Last Unicorn. Let a hundred flowers bloom! (One by one, anyway, with a year or two between them…) For decades different artists, some of them quite famous, have asked Peter to let them do a special beautifully-illustrated edition of The Last Unicorn. And for decades Peter has had to say no, because Penguin controlled those rights and no one there was interested. But with this new deal that’s all changed! So keep your eyes open: every now and then — possibly starting next Christmas, if Peter’s first choice of artist completes work on time — the world will see wonderfully new and different versions of Peter’s book and his characters, in exquisitely printed, beautifully bound editions that true book lovers will adore.

Disney animator Millicent Patrick’s work as sole designer of the Creature From the Black Lagoon was downplayed by a male coworker who then received credit for it for half a century.
