Inktober is a yearly challenge. Each day of October, people from around the world share one drawing in ink per day with the hashtag #inktober. A list of prompts is suggested. Here is my 2020 collection!
During ten years, Kaku Arakawa filmed legendary Hayao Miyazaki at work. The result is a four episode documentary. You can watch it for free on nhk. Throughout these years, we get a chance to see Hayao Miyazaki at work. Packed with wisdom embedded in the daily studio life of the director, it conveys not only an authentic, humble and thrilling take on creative processes, but also on how to live one’s life.
Ariane Mnouchkine is now eighty, and has created masterpieces year after year. Through the years, she’s surrounded herself with talented writers, composers, technicians and of course, actors. As she says, a utopia that lasts for so long kind of becomes a reality. Since its beginning, the Theatre du Soleil has had strong principles regarding what it means to be an acting troupe. These principles revolve around the core of theater as they practice it: an art of collective creation.
I've had the great pleasure to be part of the Masterclass given by the artistic team of The Scrooge Mystery project. It took place last Sunday at ComicCon Paris and we got to talk about behind-the-scenes moments and our love for Uncle Scrooge with Don Rosa fans!
