My Gal Mishka On: The Cave Paintings

"I really liked the scene where Grug is painting his family. [...] It gave a sense of the 'life' that every artist sees in their work. Even something as simple as a stick figure becomes evocative of something powerful and real."

Yep, that's why I ♥ her.

  1. That scene served as a great reminder to me that simple can be so beautiful, and that shape is important. It reminded me of an exercise I had in character design for an illustration class where we had to draw a character's silhouette before defining the details. The basic shape of a character is so important; the audience needs to be able to recognize them by that shape alone, and this movie does that so well. Each character has their own unique look and shape that helps define who they are. Truly inspiring for anyone (such as myself) who is pursuing character design.
