Man vs. Art Episode 66! The Thief and The Cobbler.

Man vs. Art Episode 66! The Thief and The Cobbler.

Play

The Thief and the Cobbler was supposed to be the greatest animated feature film ever created! The film is master animator Richard Williams life’s work, a highly revered legend in the animation industry.Williams labored on his dream project for over 30 years. Sadly, his masterpiece suffered a similar fat such as The Magnificent Ambersons and the unfinished Don Quoxite by Orson Welles. Imagine how much it sucks to have your life’s work taken away from you because of money and then released to the public in a form totally different from that you intended. I call this artist’s hell. That’s the tragic and sad story behind The Thief and the Cobbler.

When he began production in 1964, Williams wanted The Thief and the Cobbler to be his masterpiece, and a milestone in the art of animation. Because its complicated animation and independent funding, The Thief and the Cobbler was in and out of production for over three decades. Williams worked for years as a producer of incredible TV commercials. Every cent he earned went into the gradual independent production of The Thief.

Project Jose!
Jose Gonzalez is a faithful Minion and developing artist! The guy loves to draw and I have taken him under my wing to help him improve his drawing skills! I assigned him to draw a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat and below is what Jose drew. I then took Jose’s drawing and went over it with red to punch it up a little and help him make a better drawing out of it!

Free swag! Citizen Sanchez Mini Comic and Official Man Vs. Art Minion Pin! Bad Art will prompt zero emotional response in the viewer.Good Art is art that produces an emotion that you have felt before. Great Art is art that produces an emotion that you have NEVER felt before. As many of you know, I am very passionate about art. In fact it gets pointed out to me quite often. I guess a majority of it stems from my refusal to completely grow up. William Shatner is the epitome of the artist who never says die! For over four decades this guy has failed as much as he has as succeeded. He has put out as many stinkers as he has brilliant gems! What’s more William Shatner has humiliated himself a few times. But he always bounces back and we love him!
