Happy birthday to myself!!
Should have posted both pictures first. This place is in the upper peninsula of Michigan, just a little bit north of the Mackinac Bridge. It is seriously the Mystery Shack from Gravity Falls, right down to the guided tours and shitty gift shop, which is filled with useless nicknacks and racist as hell toys (which you can find in most of northern Michigan).
We have one of these in Santa Cruz- but instead of Michigan related stuff we have banana slug related stuff!
Because you know…spooky?
James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.
From the film’s IndieGo page:
Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.
In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

My wash brush set is now the Paints & Wet Media super set! 100 brushes! Reblog for a chance at a free set!
The old set contained nine brushes. The new set contains one hundred. That’s more than ten times the brushes of the old set! Oils, acrylics, wash brushes, digital concept art brushes, and more, all for Manga Studio 5 and Clip Paint.
NEW Concept Painting brushes designed for digital character and environmental art workflows.
NEW High Res Wash brushes with detailed, high resolution repeating patterns for more convincing digital watercolor work.
And a heap more! I’ve consolidated existing sets and added new brushes to simplify things moving forward. All my paint and wash brushes are now in one place.
And seriously, thank you to everyone who has participated thus far!!
