Yesterday i went to this animation office that i just began training there, me and the manager were talking and he was impressed by my knowledge of animation, he had no idea how obsessed i am with Disney and animation, so i opened my blog on his lap top, and for the first time saw my blog on somebody else’s computer, i was thrilled, the amount of followers, along with the background and posts, i was like ‘shit, this can be my resume’.
I showed him the Disney facts, and for an animation expert they were interesting as f***, and i was pointing at the amount of notes of each fact to point out the popular movies and the type of facts the people usually are interested in, everything was so helpful, it was crazy.
We kept talking about bringing 2D animation to life and keeping the way of it going with my blog is right there, it made me feel proud, proud of everything, proud of my blog, of myself, of you guys for having this love for Disney. it was amazing.
So just wanted to say, i love my blog, and i adore you guys <3

One of the most amazing, most talented artists came to this world, bringing us so much magic and pureness, the one who got thousands of people into the world of animation, and giving them the reason to dream, thank you for creating these masterpieces, thank you for changing so many lives, and in particularly mine, my ultimate idol <3
It’s true, if it wasn’t for Cinderella and The Little Mermaid, Disney would have been closed long time ago, Walt Disney put all his money on Cinderella, if it flopped in the box office it would have been the end of Disney, same goes with The Little Mermaid, both movies were a huge success, so huge that Cinderella helped Walt building Disneyland, and The Little Mermaid rose Disney from the Dark ages to the Renaissance.
"Frozen" has thawed out a new spot in box office history. This weekend, the Oscar-winning Disney film became the top-grossing animated film of all time with $1.072 billion in domestic and international sales.
The film has surpassed original record holder “Toy Story 3,” which had earned $1.063 billion. It takes up a berth as the No. 10 biggest global blockbuster, and is also the first billion-dollar film from Disney Animation Studios.
It surpassed Toy Story 3 and The Lion King
This is huge O_O, first animated DISNEY movie to gain them a billion$
there are a lot other amazing Disney animation, but going through the making of and seeing how trouble and patience the animators went through is rather inspiring and personally i love this kind of animation, even though love the Illustration-like animation too.
