Going on a road trip in just over a week!
All through the roadside eccentricities and folk art environments of Wisconsin. That’s right. Wisconsin.
I’m so excited that I wrote my itinerary, in a way that probably only I will read and appreciate but nevertheless it feels GOOD.

Saving Taiwan’s Rainbow Village
To view more photos and videos from Taiwan’s Rainbow Village, explore the 彩虹眷村 Rainbow Village location page.
In the hills outside Taichung in western Taiwan, a tiny village shines with bursts of color.
Every day, an elderly veteran—known locally as Grandpa Rainbow—adorns the walls of a former veterans’ retirement home with colorful paintings. His work has led to the town’s nickname: Rainbow Village. The village is under threat of demolition for development, but locals continue to petition for the relics to remain while avid Instagrammers travel to see Grandpa Rainbow’s intricate handiwork.
Dear Instagram, I am very into this. Thank you.
Blobby: now online for your viewing pleasure.
My goal with this film was mostly to make people feel something. The question of why I made the end so sad has come up a few times in showing this film to others. The best answer I can give is that I enjoy telling stories that are a little bit tragic, because let’s face it, life is a little tragic. Too often films, especially animations, are cute and happy and wholly one dimensional.
I like making animations that are a bit darker. Maybe I’m a little sadistic. I want to make people feel a little bit sad, but I also want to make them laugh, and maybe evoke an “awww” or two. All in the span of two minutes and seven seconds.
So watch my film, feel some feels.
Talented best friend alert!!! Feeling all the feels right now!
No winds or rains caress the moon’s dead face.
