Urbance animated project is now on Kickstarter.
YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO
so here’s a project which is both exciting and troubling. If you’re on tumblr with any regularity you know this problematic issue. It is SO EXCITING because wowie does that animation look rad! But TROUBLING because there isn’t a single black person working on this project as far as I can tell, much less any women?? (ONE woman? not an artist? third party involved?) I’m torn between feeling mad that a project composed of 95% french white guys is telling us about (caveat: “scifi”) black american culture and LGBTQ gender politics, but also FUCK those are good colors and character designs and Plaid is doing the OST and and and!!! But like, what?????? Do I need to have a problem with this?? Is this a thing Im going to have to guilty enjoy, like eating chemical hostess cupcakes? Is it going to give me cancer even as Im rubbing it all over my face??? CONFLICTED EMOTIONS???!?!!!????? Fund or not, THE CHOICE IS YOURS. :(
