The Art of Not Being a Dying Art

I made a thing. 
It squiggles.

Over the last little while I've been prepping for art school. I'm going to study animation, and I eventually intend to be involved with the production of some groundbreaking 2D films.. It's been on my heart for a while, but I haven't had the courage to pursue it till recently.Just thought I aught to let you know.

2D animation is a dying art, but it really shouldn't be. Do you know how much skill, time, and knowledge goes in to a 2D production? I mean, do you even know?

I'm sorry, I guess I've just been going through a bit of a crisis of art lately. I feel like people are losing the taste for hand drawn elegance.

I'm not saying this to knock on the 3D world. My husband is a 3D artist. But in my mind replacing all 2D animation with 3D animation is like replacing all paintings with sculptures. They're in the same field, they convey the same emotion, but you cannot just up and reeplace one with the other because it's cheaper or easier or more practical.

We need a new Renascence of 2D film. And I'm not just talking a Disney Renascence, they already got theirs and we will always thank them for that. I'm talking more people need to pick up their pencils and tablets and do more art.

If you stumble upon a spectacular 2D project, let me know. I want to hear about them. Here's one that I found recently - it's kind of restored my faith in humanity.
