#AnimationDay

As a child, I love art, I love drawing and cartoons made my day. As an adult, I’m so into animation, art imitating life and just love to laugh; part of my cheeky and sarcastic self was gotten mostly from animation movies, cartoons and satire.

So, today October 28th, we celebrate International Animation Day to recognize the artists, scientists and the technicians who are behind animated art, animated movies, cartoon drawings, etc…also to celebrate them.

 

Created by the International Animated Film Association (Association Internationale du Film d’Animation) in 2002, the unofficial holiday commemorates the day in 1892 when Charles-Emile Reynaud’s Theatre Optique made its first public appearance at the Grevin Museum in Paris, France…. The first animated film was Humorous Phases of Funny Faces? It was created by J. Stuart Blackton and came out in 1906. ..http://www.timeanddate.com/..

Tips on celebrating the day:

Watch loads of animated movies (Tom & Jerry, Toy Story, Shrek, Cinderella, Frozen, Tarzan, etc..) and try as much as possible to learn about the art and science behind these movies. Young artists should be encouraged to take up animation as part of their future ambition (you can’t go wrong making people laugh and having a good time).
