On the tenth episode of the series, Marcus and Olivia are joined by special guest, Chris Ables, to explore the wonderful world of art, animation, and character design! In the episode, they will go into what it means to be a character designer and visual development artist, the overarching industry of art and animation, and how these artistic expressions relate back to one's identity yet are a part of a larger consumption community. Be sure to listen in to hear how this innovative community is shaped by the creative culture of its artists and designers, and how society is able to enjoy the final product as a widely-consumed and celebrated art form.
C3 is a web-series that explores the relationship between culture and consumption and how it manifests within a community of like-minded people. The literature refers to these groups as cultures of consumption—sneakerheads, hackers, runners, cosplayers, DIYers, etc. Every episode, we will investigate a different culture of consumption with a guide/guest who self-identifies as a member of the community. Together, we will dive into the cultural characteristics that govern the collective and informs their shared consumption activity.
