What a way to start the new year, Dice Tsutsumi picking up the Sketchtravel book from Frederic Back’s home in Montreal

Happy new year from Paris!
Ignore the naysayers , be passionate about what you do!

As a side note I will be using Dice’s work for a post on painting, lighting and reflected light very soon.

    Wow talk about making a molehill into a mountain. You guys it’s an sketchbook not the cure for cancer. Do you really have to make a documentary about passing the book to another artist. Do you guys really think that much of yourself to think everyone wants to see you pass a book to another artist? Talk about overdoing it. I think Dice needs to leave Pixar where everyone kisses hit butt and get out into the real world and realize he is not gods gift to the world like he and Ronnie Del Carmen think they are.

    Hey Ash, my WordPress comment plugin asked me if I was “sure I wanted to approve that comment” and I said yes ;-) I don’t think it is a very constructive one or that it brings much to the plate but that’s a refreshing one. I would actually be interested to be pointed at the work of other artists as talented as Dice or Ronnie Del Carmen.

    I only know Dice through his work, his blog and several interviews but he always comes across as a very humble and talented artist. I don’t know every single artist on the planet or even in feature but I can clearly see his talent in the understanding of light and his passion for his art. I am actually preparing a post on the importance of lighting in feature animation and Dice will definitely be named.

    Dice and Ronnie Del Carmen are also involved in a lot of altruistic projects, charity work and this is something very few people can claim. I have therefore no shame in bringing artists like Dice forward. Thanks for your input Ash but believe me, I am passionate about animation and not a fan boy.

    I don’t understand why anyone has to criticize someone else doing their personal project on their own time and money. Sure, maybe it is bit over the top to film a sketchbook passed around. But again, this is totally on their own having good time doing their own project. And the project is to benefit a charity to build libraries in the third world. This documentary on Frederic Back was free of a charge right?

    This project is just like someone’s personal sketches through self funded publication we often see at conventions. You may find no interest in it but some may find it interesting enough. Has nothing to do with if Dice or Ronnie think they are awesome.
    Again, this is their personal project they happen to share with some of us. (if you have no interest, you don’t have to see it)

    I know this is just one person’s opinion from 8 months ago but it was way over the top “ridiculous” that I had to chime in. Just sad.
