There is quite a bit of talk now about vaccines due to the number of rising cases of measles, but rather than talk about whether or not you should vaccinate, here is a great video by TED Ed explaining how vaccines work. Check it out!
A couple days ago I came across Bee and Puppycat created by Natasha Allegri & Frederator Studios on Cartoon Hangover. This was apparently funded on Kickstarter a while back and if I had found this sooner, I would totally have helped fund it.
This brings back so many memories of my childhood. Popeye was definitely the only reason why I agreed to eat spinach.

A great animation by Matt Greenwood about very important elements of design that should always be considered. They don't all need to be implemented, but they should be considered when you approach your design.
A friend of mine, Little Seed, recently brought my attention to Olivia Huynh a freelance animator based out of Baltimore. I've been memorized by her illustrations, animation, and .gifs. They are so full of life and saturated colors to the point where I'll probably get lost in her tumblr page for hours on end. Be sure to check out Huynh's website for more beautiful work.
Watch the making of Kelli Andersons stop-motion film inspired by the original artwork by Marie Caudry in Plants. This is an amazing project that turns such and analog process into a digital medium for children to enjoy.
Watch Disney's Big Hero 6 official teaser trailer! Looks pretty fun, I can't wait!
Michael Eurek took the well loved game Ocarina of Time and rendered the Temple of Time in the new Unreal Engine 4. This was by far one of my favorite games of all time, if only Zelda:OoT was remade to look like this in it's entirety. Weren't they going to remaster Majora's Mask? I guess not ... so sad.
