  • Comments Off on Hot off the Press: #ZenPencils means a happy animated life

cartoons and animation are not just about silly jokes. it can be true ART with a lot to say. that’s why we love Zen Pencils and the inspiration these querky drawings bring us…this is one of our fav Zen Pencil quotes


we are so excited to learn that Zen Pencils is encouraging youth animators to follow where their doodling takes them by offering a free youth activity guide. 

***tips by the creator of Zen Pencils include:

Use color against black and white to highlight joy or positivity.

Lines and repeated images are used to show motion.

For example, draw lines around or behind a character/object to show movement. 


Find a quote that you feel applies to your own life and create a comic that tells a story of your fav quote. It could be a story from your life or a story that you make up. Don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of drawing experience…

For more great ideas to spark your comic dreams, you can download the Zen Pencils activity guide for free here

It’s graduation season and lots of celebrations are happening.  

Rightfully so, because graduates have worked hard to accomplish their goals.  But it’s also clear that the day after graduation difficulty awaits.  The challenge becomes what to make of the education you have received.   You’ve got goals; go for it. But when you fall (trust me you will fail) keep getting back up…the key is try & try again…

One of my favorite teen experts, Josh Shipp, had some great words for this year’s grads.  Here’s what he has to say
