Inspiration - a moment with Frederico Cascinalli
I was lucky enough to stumble across this article yesterday. It is a brief interview with character animator Federico Cascinalli. Above, is an example of his still life work.
The amazing thing about this guy is that he gave up a brilliant career for a career in the arts. BRILLIANT - he was a top surgeon in Italy before throwing in the towel and severing many relationships in the process.
A career in what he loved and not what was expected of him?? What a novel idea!
I love his anology the ups and downs in life are like waves - being depressed is like being underwater for a little while, you just need to hold your breath and wait 'til you come up again.
