Back in May, an aspiring animator named Willie Downs sent me an invitation to contribute to his Animator Letters Project (a hand-written snail mail invitation, no less!). Willie is planning on compiling the letters he receives into a book, and while he’s only gotten a few responses (my buddy Aaron was the first to respond), they’re all fairly inspiring!
I wasn’t going to post the letter until Willie published his book, but Letters of Note put it up on their site, and I’ve been getting the most awesome and uplifting feedback from people. So here it is for anyone who needs a word of encouragement today.
