Hamlet said, “…there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so,” and to the depths of my soul I have always believed this to be true. In fact, I recently created a pair of customized Converse sneakers with that phrase emblazoned on the side. (Okay, it’s a lesser commitment than tattooing it on my body, but I do plan to have those trainers for a long time!) Accepting this precept, however, begs this question: Is a tenacious spirit the excellent quality I have always thought it to be, or, rather, a stubborn refusal to know when it is time to give up?
With that in mind, along with the recent horrifying discovery that the word perseverance can be rearranged to form the crude anagram “never see crap,” I have decided to throw caution – and perhaps common sense – to the wind. “Vulnerability be damned,” say I. Social media has unparalleled potency, and I must harness it!!
What I am really saying is this: Please watch the motion comic video of IF I HAD A DIME, the grown-up cartoon I have been developing for the past 3 years, and share your thoughts with me, bearing in mind that this video is a simple attempt to realize a vision that requires full animation, with its attendant full budget, to be thoroughly executed.
I appreciate your attention, willingness to share, and useful feedback more than you can know. ~Cie
