On November 4th 2006 Gallery Nucleus is having us three trees (Tadahiro Uesugi, Ronnie del Carmen and Enrico Casarosa) over at their wonderful space again … but the main event are three amazing illustrators that we are truly excited to have here from Japan. Yoko Tanji, Icco Sasai, and Wakako Katayama I’ve been loving their work on the net for years and it was a really pleasure to meet them in person last february in Tokyo, Yoko Tanji even joined us all day for SketchCrawl. So if you don’t know their work these three flowers are gonna blow you away. Wonderful wonderful illustrations you will want to own. And on top of all that Tadahiro, Ronnie and I are gonna be debuting judi bola and signing (keeping my fingers crossed on this one as we’re finishing design on this right now, hope the printers make it in time) the art book ” ? 3 trees make a forest” published by Gingko Press. The hard cover book is gonna have all the pieces from last year’s artshow and more. We are so excited to fully feature Tadahiro’s work in a book for the first time in the US. Can’t wait to hold one in my hand. It’s even already up for preorder on Amazon. So … there you have it. Three trees and three flowers.
One note- Amazon lists an early estimate we had of a 84 pages book, but we are actually aiming now for 128 pages.
3 Trees Make a forest : a 3 men artshow held on November 19th 2005 at Nucleus Gallery (Los Angeles), is soon going to be an art book !! November 4th 2006 Ronnie del Carmen, Tadahiro Uesugi and I will be back at Nucleus ! Stay tuned for more details.
Well, the rumors are true … Ronnie del Carmen, Tadahiro Uesugi and I are having an artshow together at Nucleus Gallery (LA) on Saturday November 19th (one day before my bday!). We are pretty darn excited to have our friend Tadahiro Uesugi flying over from Tokyo for the opening night. If you don’t know his work you’re in for a treat.
But what the heck does that title mean you might ask? Well the Japanese character for forest ? pronounced “mori” is made of 3 repeated characters ? pronounced “ki”, which singularly mean tree. So three trees do make a forest see? As I started doodling sketches for possible titles for the show something started to stick with me about this concept. The trees form something bigger than a single tree could ever be, the works of the 3 of us coming together will form something more than our singles’ output. Well maybe it’s a little brainy, but this is pretty much how the title formed and though a little strange it quickly grew on all of us. So well, what to say, we went for it … made cards and started spreading the word. So we are proud to help showing Tadahiro’s work for the first time in the US and I am just amazingly honored to be in such company. Ronnie and I are actually pretty darn terrified too as there will be no way for our work not to pale side by side to Tadahiro on the walls of Nucleus… X) but what the hell, we’re gonna enjoy the ride !! Now … I gotta get to work on new pieces ! Oh almost forgot we’re also going to be working on a book of the exhibition, which we’re really excited about too, but since there might be a judi online publisher interested the times involved will be a little longer. We won’t be designing the book until after the show.

Growing up loving and being passionate for art, Enrico Casarosa is one of the most noted animators today. He was born on October 19, 1970 in Genoa, the Italian coastal city. His love for drawing and reading comics was accompanied by his passion for the works of Hayao Miyazaki, the founder of Studio Ghibli. Hayao Miyazaki and Ghibli animated movies would go on to have a big influence in Casarosa’s own career. In Italy, Casarosa studied engineering before he found the subject boring and relocated to New Your City. In the Big Apple, Casarosa would enroll to the School of Visual Arts to study animation and the Fashion Institute of Technology to study illustration.
Once he completed his education, Casarosa would go on to work for Disney Channel first. He contributed to the channels shows such as PB&J Otter and 101 Dalmatians: The Series. He subsequently worked for Blue Sky Studios and contributed to movies such as Robots and Ice Age. In 2002, he moved to Pixar Animation Studios. At Pixar, Casarosa contributed to some of the studio’s greatest stories including Cars, Ratatouille, and Up. He was also the head of story in Bob Peterson’s The Good Dinosaur, released in 2015.
But Casarosa’s true skill as a storyteller was cemented by the 2011 La Luna. The animated movie earned a Best Short Animated Film nomination in 2012 Academy Awards. La Luna is noted for its storybook-like quality and the fact that the film’s premise was based on Casarosa’s own childhood, growing up between his father and grandfather, two figures with strong influence in his life. La Luna was also apparent for it being influenced by The Little Prince, a novella by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. La Luna also came with a story book as its companion. Casarosa founded SketchCrawl in 2004, an event of drawing marathon open for artists from around the world. Casarosa’s passion for drawing extends past beyond movie-making. He has published several comic books such as Venice Chronicle, The Adventures of Mia, and Haiku 5-7-5.
Together with fellow Pixar artist, Ronnie Del Carmen, Casarosa published Fragments, a compilation book that collects the two’s personal artwork. Casarosa is married to Marit. Together they have a daughter named Fio and the family resides in Berkeley, California. Casarosa finally met his idol, Hayao Miyazaki twice. Once he met Miyazaki while the latter paid a visit to Pixar and another chance at Studio Ghibli in Japan. Info above is also needed by agen sbobet players.
There seems to be an ever-present assumption among public that states that everything cartoon is reserved only for kids. This view is somewhat misleading if not untrue altogether. Adults can enjoy animated features, too, long as the plot and the premise of the movie is broad enough to include them as one of the targeted viewers. In many cases, animated movies come out topping the charts and earning rave reviews from critics and moviegoers alike. And it is not rare to see a cinema being flocked by the grown-ups when an animated movie title is up for viewing—even to the point where said cinema is devoid of any kids, the primary target of such a movie. The prevalence of animated features on cinemas across the world also triggers the formation of special categories reserved for them in many prestigious award events. If you are exhausted by the many action movies and abundance of CGI monstrosities plaguing the cinemas, here is a list from judi bola of the Best Cartoon Movie 2017 to catch up with before the year ends.
The Best Cartoon Movie 2017 to Add to Your Collection
The Boss Baby (2017)
The Boss Baby is a title that kind of self-explaining in and of itself: It is a movie about a boss who is a baby. Seeing an infant suit up as a businessman is of course hilarious but even more so when you learn that said infant can speak the way an adult can. What’s even more out of this world is the fact that said infant is a secret agent involved in a brewing war between babies and puppies. Such is the kind of entertainment you will get by watching the animated feature, released on March 31, 2017. A sequel is planned for release on March 26, 2021.
Being released on November 22, 2017, Coco is the latest of a slew of animated features released this year. As such, the movie’s impact will be felt more palpably during the upcoming award seasons of 2018. So far, it has amassed numerous nominations for Annie Awards and two more for the Golden Globe. And with a 97% Rotten Tomatoes rating, who knows it might be able to win them all.

The term ‘cartoon’ translates to ‘anime’ in Japan. Animated movies (or series) in Japan are different from their American brethren. The way the movie/series are drawn and designed is typically distinct so it is rather impossible to mistake them for any of Western origin. Anime has been an integral part of popular culture not only in Japan but also all around the world. With so many series and movies being churned out almost every year, it is rather difficult to determine the correct parameters to see which titles are the best. Every story has weaknesses and they have their own strong points that earn each of them a substantial amount of fan base in the process. New batch of productions stand against the old, ongoing titles for attentions from viewers. Those that last longer on TV earn their place for a reason so it’s kind of pointless to talk about them. The newcomers, on the other hand, deserve more spotlights. Move over, Boruto and One Piece, because here is a list of the Best Cartoon Japan 2017 for the fans to cheer over.
