Joining today: digital modeler for Blue Sky Studios, teacher and panelist on Diverse Toons, Andre Rodriguez
It’s easy to imagine a story: the decisions, mistakes, and sacrifices that can drive someone. And so much harder to survive, forgive, outlast the ‘character’ we can become in another person’s life.
But what happens when the world we live in decides that for us? When we try to escape the lines, the tales that other people would define us by? How do we, as Andre would say, ‘find our square’—that one specific place where who we are resides? And when do we fight back?
As it turns out, even our conversations about imagined worlds are bound by the lives we’ve had. And that the fictions we invent or act upon can often become too real.
For some of Andre’s most recent work, you can visit his personal site, hear the new album, Ravenous by BTB, that he co-produced, or watch the official trailer for Spies in Disguise.
You can also speak with him in person at the next BlerdCityCon on July 13th as a part DiverseToons’ “Black in Animation” panel.
