Tribute to the Beginning - Part 1

CARDCAPTOR SAKURA (aka "CardCaptors")

This is part 1 of the series of marker doodles of television shows and films that inspired me to be a part of the wonderful world of Animation.

CardCaptor Sakura was a brilliant show. It was like taking the best of pokemon and sailormoon and mashing it up into one great storyline.

I'm not ashamed to say that I was a total fangirl of this series. I watched it religiously, and then rewatched the episodes on my VHS tapes to the point where I memorized the lines.

I also owe it to this show that I started picking up the concept of colour, action, design, and appeal--that even now, I still remember and utilize.

There are many shows that helped jumpstart that switch in my brain that told me I wanted to become an animator. But this show, by many standards, takes the top tier of the cake.

kudos, Cardcaptor Sakura.
You made me me.
