Until one is forced to believe that Art is Dead does one find resonance in the truth that Real Art Never Dies.

Congrats to the Okapodi team for receiving an Oscar nomination last week for Best Animated Short! It must be amazing to be up there with contenders like Pixar! I had the honor of seeing their gradshow debut two summers ago at the Gobelins summer school, and we were so blown away by their talent. The team was so kind to give us a class talk, even though they were in the middle of finishing the film. I wish them the best of luck!
