Last weekend, I saw the film Loving Vincent. The film is illustrated through painted animation that references Van Gogh's work not only in terms of style, but subject matter and characters as well. The technical aspects of the film are truly impressive - 100 artists, each frame hand-painted. This was truly a labor of love.
The idea of so many artists contributing to this film was such a moving (literally) tribute to a beautiful, and often misunderstood soul who was not long for this world, but left a wealth of timeless art and inspiration. I absolutely love these types of experiences that open my eyes to possibility! This was a great reminder for what I am trying to do with my work as well - using expressive brushstrokes and color to convey the feeling of seeing the world through fresh eyes again.
I highly recommend seeing this film. If you do, feel free to share your comments and let me know what you think!
