Lost audio interviews with cultural icons transformed into new, animated film shorts. Super interesting.
Sugilite Fusion x Monster
This week I was introduced to the greatness that is Steven Universe. I haven’t fallen in love with a cartoon this quickly since middle school. My initial intrigue came from this very short video, then I looked up the synopsis and found out that not only was Nicki Minaj voicing a character, but also Estelle. And that most of the voice actors were people of color. And now, I’m marathoning and ending each episode in a really good mood. Great storytelling, hilarious characters, quality world building, awesome music, expert illustration, overall maximum adorability.

last week i highlighted the design process of a book cover with an end result that wasn’t really feeling. well, some of my design idols just happen to have done an alternate cover that i definitely, obviously find droolworthy.
Black Messiah: A Musician’s Review
i’m just now getting around to having the time to properly listen to d’angelo’s long-long-long-awaited album. after my first listen, i listened again while reading this in-depth review by a very talented musician in his own right and it made me love it even more. i can’t decipher all his music references, but no matter, my nerdy audiophile heart got the gist and was able to geek out properly.
