I found this gorgeous animated short film, which was directed by Ishida YuYasushi. The stylization and charm reminds me of Studio Ghibli films or anything made by Mamoru Hosoda, the director of Summer Wars and The Girl who Leapt Through Time.
Zheng Chunhui, a famous Chinese wood carver spent 4 years engineering this master piece from a single tree. Based on a famous Chinese painting “Along the River During the Quingming Festival” the carving echoes the daily life of the 12th century Chinese local. The level of detail is stunning!
Pokemon: The Very Best
This comic is not just about training Pokemon.
This comic is for me when I think about my art; for my sister-in-law when she worries about her university studies; for countless others who wish that they could be better than anyone else at something.
At the end of the day, there is no meauring stick with any real meaning other than this: are we better at something today than we were yesterday, and what can we do to be better still tomorrow?

"I think I really wanted to prove something to myself, but at the same time, I’m very sensitive. When you see those action movies and it’s like the back of somebody’s head and then all of a sudden they give that one pose at the end and you’re like, "That was not…That was the lamest thing." You want to see the actor risking their life. It’s part of what sells it, I think, as an audience member, and, like I said, I’m sensitive about that sort of thing. So I would want to… I never would want to be that. I wouldn’t want to be perceived as a wuss who couldn’t do it, I guess. " - Scarlett Johansson
