"Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it, we go nowhere." -Carl Sagan

A self portrait of sorts; the visions in our minds may seem unattainable, but serve to push us forward, and encourage us to grow.

Dedicated to my wonderful pup, Simba, who passed away during the make of this, and whose memory inspired me to finish.

Audio: Olafur Arnalds, "This Place is a Shelter"

I agree.  Imagination is a wonderful thing, and its something youth are starved for today.  I've been catching up on a lot of older shows on Netflix lately, shows I grew up on, and others I'd missed.  Jim Hensen had a WONDERFUL sense of imagination and creativity.  He could not only create a kid friendly show, but add this sense of adventure and wonder to it that you don't find anymore.  Fraggle Rock, The Secret Life of Toys, and The Storyteller series are just amazing.  Today people feel a need to "shelter" the youth, and we're so focused on trying to make child prodigies and cram education in early development programs, it just ruins everything...  And when child media isn't brain-numbingly dummied down, its either crude or teaching adult themes to early ages (like 10-year-olds needing to have girl-friend/boy friend relationships)

Hensen and Miyazaki forever

This may be the most wonderful, inspiring, imaginitive, loveable minute of animated art I've ever seen in my life (besides few scenes in major mainstream movies n shows)!
Can I share this on twitter?

O-Oh. My. Gosh. I'm having ahard time coming up with words as to explain how beautiful this is. It's so touching and and so moving~ I love the transition of how it starts out as a man sailing on a rocky ocean and then goes to a child painting the man sailing and the colorful fish! So incredible! And the way it starts out quiet and goes to this quiet, subtle, calming music is like tghe cherry on top of the whole thing!! Love it!!!

I'm so sorry about Simba~ :iconcomfortplz:

Congrats on the brilliant, touching DD~ :aww:

It is pure inspiration, I have only but few words that can describe the depth of this work.

Beautiful: The are work was gorgeous and the colors were so emotional, I love every thing about it is full of beauty! (there is nothing else to say about it, it is just beautiful ^,^ )

Gentle: Every little thing in it looked so simple and so flawless, but the meaning and the depth of the subject is so big and you handle it so gentle. It moves me to see that I am not the only one that had a childhood with so much imagination and color. So many of us (artist) wish to someday do an art work that can move and express every thing that we feel deep in side about art.

Inspiration: It is true that Imagination can take us far away from reality, but without it there would not be goals and dreams. The power of imagination and creativity is so special, and I know that there are people that just don't have this gift of creativity and imagination and some have the creativity but they don't have the skills and talents to express it. I feel lucky to know that I have all three Imagination, Creativity, and Talents to express it. We as artist have the duty to use this imagination to make art the can express the emotions and dreams of people, that way when the people that cant express it can feel comfort and for the once that don't have dreams or inspiration they can find one.

I am sorry for your lost. It sound like Simba was a great friend. Just remember that as long as you have him in your memories and heart he will keep inspiring you.
Thank you for this animation, it move me and it is by far one of the best animation I have seen in DeviantART, congrats on your DD, keep up the great work and keep inspiring others! ^w^
