i’m jealous of julia pott

Ah yes, awkward bears in loud knitwear, love from a distance, and what I can only assume to be a polar bear with a crush on a boy named Keith Nash. I am jealous of these illustrations, and I’m jealous of this very sweet, award winning, animation titled My First Crush {fyi: the polar bear that loves Keith Nash is a rough from this film}. And really, can you blame me? The work of London based illustrator / animator Julia Pott makes everyone jealous! I have seen her work on just about every art blog that exists… including this one! {In 2009, I included her beautiful sketchbook in my very first ‘Jealously Curated’ show, Peep Show}.

    Love these! And the really funny thing is that I was sketching the EXACT same speckled bear (the first pic) as a study for a painting about 2 weeks ago!!! I kid you not! http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/staticfiles/NGS/Shared/StaticFiles/animals/images/primary/spectacled-bear.jpg

    I know! Her work is amazing!! I love that she draws some of the less known animals like moon bears, bush babies, and red pandas.

    Great stuff.

    I’m so jealous of her it burns my heart. I mean, she’s an incredible illustrator AND makes fantastic animations. What more can you want?

    “The possibilities of a magnitude-10 occurring are very low,” professor Toru Matsuzawa of Tohoku University reported at the Nov. 21 meeting associated with the Coordinating Committee for Earthquake Prediction, Japan. “But if we think of what could happen, making use of maximum notion, we are make a swift response.”The world’s largest recorded earthquake was the magnitude-9.5 Valdivia earthquake off the coast of Chile in 1960, rupturing a 1,000-kilometer fault. A magnitude-10 earthquake may very well be 30 times more powerful in contrast to magnitude-9.0 Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011.Matsuzawa said a magnitude-10 quake is possible in theory if a large fault slips.
