This is a tribute to the beloved cartoonist Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000) and his classic comic strip: Peanuts (1950-2000).
The specific strip I chose to model and animated after is from June 22, 1970, where the tiny yellow bird Woodstock was named for the first time by Snoopy.
Another tribute of this one is visual story telling, which successful comic strips have mastered eons ago. So through animation, it is a challenge to capture and to push visual storytelling on this 3D/VR media platform.
My personal reason to do this is to celebrate the upcoming birthday of my biological big sister Hennessy, and my non-biological big brother Eliot. Although they've never met each others, yet they were born on the same day, same year, and both are avid fans of Peanuts.
