You are tired,
Of the always puzzle of living and doing;
And so am I.
Come with me, then,
And we’ll leave it far and far away—
(Only you and I, understand!)
You have played,
And broke the toys you were fondest of,
And are a little tired now;
Tired of things that break, and—
So am I.
But I come with a dream in my eyes tonight,
And knock with a rose at the hopeless gate of your heart—
Open to me!
For I will show you the places Nobody knows,
And, if you like,
The perfect places of Sleep.
Ah, come with me!
I’ll blow you that wonderful bubble, the moon,
That floats forever and a day;
I’ll sing you the jacinth song
Of the probable stars;
I will attempt the unstartled steppes of dream,
Until I find the Only Flower,
Which shall keep (I think) your little heart
While the moon comes out of the sea.
Misato Katsuragi Dreams of the Second Impact
Misato didn’t appeal to me when I watched Eva the first time, but re-watching it recently as an adult I’ve come to really like her. She seems carefree and detached, but she’s suffered greatly and struggles against many obstacles, from patriarchy to the threat of global annihilation. Also she has good taste in beer.
This piece was done as part of the Red Cross Book Eva fan zine.
A Year In Trees
A made this animated/print piece to accompany the beautiful op-ed story “A Year in Trees" for the NY Times. I was really excited to try animating something like this. Thanks AD’s Erich Nagler and Aviva Michaelov !

if you ever think about giving up, remember why you held on for so long
“Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light. Tragedy is the most ridiculous thing.”
― Frida Kahlo
Remember this quote and understand why it is wrong to enshroud the memory of Frida in an aura of pain & suffering as if that’s what she were all about.
One Koala entered someone’s house, looking for water and shade, and here’s what happened when the owner gave him something to drink.
