On the first day of my very first animation class my crazy hardass professor (whom I still love) gave us this whole involved speech about animation and how hard it is but how rewarding it is blah blah blah...

Him: "Illustration is nice until you get that god damn ITCH and that drawing isn't good enough anymore. You gotta ANIMATE IT. You gotta make the damn thing MOVE. "

Me: "Sounds fake but ok."

Flash forward about two years.

Me: ...THE ITCH.
