Today, megax brings us a translated interview with an ex-professional animator who decided to adventure into the world of freelance illustration. Enjoy!
While not directly animation, one can point out the similar necessity of time and effort into drawing illustrations. I felt this was an interesting view into the life of an illustrator who used to be an animator and the differences one has to have in those skill sets. Please enjoy reading about non, aka Nozomi Ousaka.
This isn’t a new development, but the events got traction today thanks to a statement by CDJapan on the matter going viral. Our friend megax is here to explain the business decision that likely lead to this.
While most of the content on this site will relate to the actual animation process, we’d be amiss to ignore the finances that make such process happen. As such, I like to pop in from time to time to talk about the various business-related events that affect the anime industry. One said event occurred this week as an international retailer who sells Japanese-made products internationally sent out an e-mail that caused a big ruckus in the international anime community. As this affects us more than the domestic audience, I felt the need to discuss this and to correct some misconceptions.
