My name is Anthony Delbrun. I got my name from the biblical Saint of Padua Anthony. I was born on April 26th, 1999 at Kings County Hospital at approximately 5:27pm. I lived in Brooklyn, NY, USA for all my life but as for my parents they were born in Haiti. I come from a Haiti background but I barely speak the language. As a young boy growing in East Flatbush, I was a shy boy who didn't speak up for myself until the age of 7. What made me enroll in the Communication Design field is my passion for videogames and drawing. While growing I never really had a career decided for myself. The fact that there were so many jobs out there to my liking I couldn't choose. First I wanted to work at a pizzeria since I love to eat pizza. Second, I wanted to be a scientist because I wanted to make a time machine and take a blast from the past. Now we ALL know that's not possible. Lastly, I made up a fantasy career of becoming a “Bus-Driver-Crasher” meaning I'd drive a bus and crash into many objects and people.
That had to be one of the dumbest ideas for a career ever! But since I was a little boy at that time I made it up, that's fine. It wasn't until my cousin from my dad's side who introduced me to videogames and drawing. From there on I experienced a passion for them, thus motivated me to become a Graphic Designer in videogames. Plus I wanted some excitement in my life. My skills are average but I’m still learning some techniques here and there so they will be useful in this field. A tagline to remember me is this: “Hard-work beats natural talent!” Also, I have an addiction to Japanese Anime! Look at my profile picture for example.

Lectures Week 11 -12: Anthony Delbrun

“The Big Idea” means you have to have good concepts to get good narrative illustration. It’s a way to set a mood before saying a word. The illustration of David from “No, David” I knew the character was mischievous right away. David holding the frying pan and his expression indicates the mischievous nature. This is an example of a beat that is used to create a satisfying effect on the user.

To decide which point of view would be the optimal one to “shoot” the scene from, an illustrator needs to visualize their scene in 360 degrees. Different view points in illustration can make the viewer(s) feel certain emotions and make a story or what have you impactful. Take a bird’s eye view for example, that shot gives the viewers a sense of awe and an eye-level shot forms connection with the viewers.

Discussion 11: Anthony Delbrun

“Greg Ruth Stories: A Love Letter” by Bill Sienkiewicz and Neil Gaiman was an interesting read. It was mainly discussing how humans automatically tell narrative stories everyday not even knowing and it is what separates us from other creatures in the world. I especially loved the last paragraph when Greg said “Storytelling is human magic in its most important form, writ large. It is by every definition an act of magic to make up a person, write/draw that person to such an extent as to create an emotional response in an actual real live human person”. I agree that regardless if its a movie, book or what have you people would find enjoyment and knowledge through storytelling.

Another quote Greg said that peaked my interest was this: “What story will you leave behind when you’re gone. Will it be worth retelling?” As a person who is creating an original cartoon, I am telling a story as well so people can learn and enjoy something out of it for many generations to come.
