Alternative Post

Since I wasn't able to make it to some of the art shows, I will write about one of the pieces of art that I admire.

One of my favorite animation movies of all time is The Danish Poet. I ran into the movie while I was browsing for short animation movies on youtube. I found the link for the movie on youtube ( It is such a beautifully executed tale of romance between Casper and a local woman that he meets while he goes on holiday to Norway to meet his creative inspiration Singrid. The animation itself isn't that great but I love the colors used and the black outlines on all the charaters. It is also a story of chance and the weird twists and turns of fate that change our lives. I love how everything comes in full circle at the end and the story also has its funny moments. A must watch :)
