The above beautiful  award winning short film” The Last Artist” ~ Written, directed and produced by Allysha Webber ~ Animation & Artwork by MotionLab ~ Narrated by Francis Edwards.

Extremely captivating so please view and enjoy it yourselves as much as I did. The film led me to show you a snap I took of an iconic mural designed by Kenson Seto, and painted by Alex Li and Falk in China Town, Vancouver. The “Lao Tsu  Mural”  This lovely mural will be lost forever owing to a new  building being built onto the wall. http://www.vancitybuzz.com/2015/03/city-green-lights-chinatown-development-blocking-iconic-mural/

The mural has the written translation of  Chinese philosopher Lao Tsu ~ “It takes knowledge to understand others, but it needs a clear mind to know oneself. It takes strength to surpass others, but it requires a strong will to surpass oneself.”

Film ~ Allysha Webber ~ Comment & snap ~ Mitch Hicks

So much what I snap is music flowing thru my mind”
