so The Book of Life has a Mexican mariachi version of “I Will Wait” by fucking Mumford and Sons
this movie is a cinematic masterpiece
Day 20: Monster
I love playing around with Jiji’s design, I always feel theres more that I can tweak and add to it! Have her more werewolf-crazy self!
This kind of ‘look’ was a bit more inspired from "Take it Off" and "WooHoo". Both these songs actually were very much ones I wanted to animate with Jiji as well. “Die Young” won out because it is my personal favorite song and seemed decently do-able. But i think both these other songs REALLY have a very strong Jiji attitude to them! c:

A medieval manuscript that was peed on by a cat
Scribe was forced to leave the rest of the page empty, drew a picture of a cat and cursed the creature with the following words:
“Hic non defectus est, sed cattus minxit desuper nocte quadam. Confundatur pessimus cattus qui minxit super librum istum in nocte Daventrie, et consimiliter omnes alii propter illum. Et cavendum valde ne permittantur libri aperti per noctem ubi cattie venire possunt.”
[Here is nothing missing, but a cat urinated on this during a certain night. Cursed be the pesty cat that urinated over this book during the night in Deventer and because of it many others [other cats] too. And beware well not to leave open books at night where cats can come.]
Cologne, Historisches Archiv, G.B. quarto, 249, fol. 68r
it always throws me that the Latin for “cat” is actually “cattus” and declines nicely
