Just a little bit of Musical Art to enjoy.

Bit different wasn't it!
Starting with an amazing story about a loyalty that will take some beating even today.
In 1924, Hachikō was brought to Tokyo by his owner, Hidesaburō Ueno, a professor in the agriculture department at the University of Tokyo. Hachiko During his owner’s life Hachikō saw him off from the front door and greeted him at the end of the day at the nearby Shibuya Station. The pair continued their daily routine until May 1925, when Professor Ueno didn’t return on the usual train one evening. The professor had suffered a stroke at the university that day. He died and never returned to the train station where his friend was waiting.Hachikō was given away after his master’s death, but he routinely escaped, showing up again and again at his old home. After time, Hachikō apparently realized that Professor Ueno no longer lived at the house. So he went to look for his master at the train station where he had accompanied him so many times before. Each day, Hachikō waited for Professor Ueno to return. And each day he didn’t see his friend among the commuters at the station.The permanent fixture at the train station that was Hachikō attracted the attention of other commuters. Many of the people who frequented the Shibuya train station had seen Hachikō and Professor Ueno together each day. Realizing that Hachikō waited in vigil for his dead master, their hearts were touched.They brought Hachikō treats and food to nourish him during his wait.This continued for 10 years, with Hachikō appearing only in the evening time, precisely when the train was due at the station.
There are many links to this story on Youtube, many more since it was made into such a successful film
Wow. Talk about loyal. If this doesn’t PROVE that dogs love their owners, I don’t know what is.There is a movie in Japan about Hachiko, and there is a US remake  in the works. Here’s an extremely tear-jerker preview of the Japanese version:

Tony White ~ "Hokusai," ~ An Animated Sketch

Tony Comments on his own work, "Hokusai"

This was my first ever... and still my favourite... short animated film! I created it in my spare time while I was still a director/animator at the Richard Williams Studio in London during the late 1970's.
 I actually started the film after we had completed 'A Christmas Carol', when I was Richard Williams' own personal assistant at the time. 'Carol' went on to win the first of Dick's three Oscars.
When my own 'Hokusai' film won a British Academy Award I moved on to set-up the 'Animus Productions' animation studio... a creative entity I led for a further 20 award-winning years.
The film itself was inspired by the wonderful sketchbooks of Hokusai. When I saw them I realized that this artist was indeed a true animator at heart... he just didn't have the knowledge or the technology to be one in his lifetime.
I therefore sought to bring his drawings to life for him, as homage to his genius.
You might be interested to know that I'm just starting a new animated biography. Hopefully it will be finished by the end of the year, 2014.
