Animation Time! - Chubby Rig


Today's Inspiration:
It’s necessary for me to be surrounded by truth and beauty. I need it. Otherwise I can’t work.

“You have to be so motivated that you have to want to draw so badly that it’s like taking away your oxygen not to draw. It has to be so much a part of your expression and your personality that you cannot live without it. You can’t go for more than two days without drawing. I mean, it is that basic a need for me.”
