This is my version of Barry. The conceit: what if he was just really lost and had absolutely no direction? The fastest man alive, having no idea where to run. He becomes a hero because he can be but he’s never outrageously confident of it. He spends most of his time thinking and is a happy dude but has a sense of calm about him because he spends most of his time in his own overactive sometimes self-deprecating thoughts.
After reading hundreds of articles on the fact that generation Y or 20somethings are lost and feeling lost sometimes myself, i thought i’d be fun to give someone who’s already lost, superpowers…and have that not fix anything. One thing isn’t going to change your life. You have to persevere no matter what.
I’m not too good at this animation thing yet so I used another gif as reference for the timing and movement on this one. Shameless, I know, but I’m learning =/. Thanks William Niu!! Your tumblr is crazy inspirational.
Haha. As much as I don’t really like to post more personal stuff on the webernets, I think(?!?) this is universal enough that other people might be able to relate. This is usually where my head is at when I get in an art funk. WHAT DO? (And please forgive my messy handwriting ahaha)
I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five. The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female. (via World Cup Soccer Stats Erase The Sport’s Most Dominant Players: Women)
