I remember the days of watching Sawyer try a skateboard trick he really wanted to master. This was no ordinary kid. He would try, and fall 100 times, consecutively until he got it right. Even if it took hours. Today, happily, he uses that extraordinary perseverance to get animation right. He loves it, and he’s got the material to prove it. Stacks and stacks of drawings. Stacks and stacks of books and manuals. His superheroes are Disney’s Nine Old Men. He knows what he wants to do when he grows up. Thankfully, 2D animation is making a comeback.
