A Hero Blog is Born
Hi everybody! Let’s start with the cold hard facts!
Name: Jehan Madhani
Program: Combined Degree with the School of the Museum of Fine Arts
Tufts Major: English (I’m in the process of declaring!)
SMFA doesn’t really require majors (or grades…), but I’m focusing on Animation and some Illustration!
Hometown: Houston, TX
Food: Easy Mac
Cereal: Cap’n Crunch and Froot Loops
When I grow up: I want to be an animator who regularly chills with my best friends Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Meryl Streep.
Throughout high school, I regularly drew myself as Super Jehan, budding super hero. She never had any powers. She was me wearing a cape.
I’m one of the three Co-Managers of the Tufflepuffs, our Muggle Quidditch Team! We had an incredible run last semester, and we’ll be heading to Florida in April for the Quidditch World Cup! We also have Intramural Teams for everybody to take part in (including the unathletic, like myself)! I’m involved off and on with way too many on campus organizations. I cartoon for the Daily, and I was briefly and unsuccessfully a DJ for WMFO, Tufts’ freeform radio station!
I love storytelling and the entertainment industry almost as much as I love Vanilla Coke, the source of my life force. I eventually want to work in the industry, but for the time being, I am more than content to be the target audience for everything. I’m pretty passionate about movies and pop culture. I also watch an unreasonable amount of TV considering the amount of homework I complain about.
I want to share my art and my interests on this blog, so please ask me about either, or any of my Tufts/SMFA experiences! Also, tell me what you want to see me draw, and I’ll try and give it a shot! I'm always looking for new ideas!
BONUS: Two animation clips you should watch! The first is a super short clip from an Emperor's New Clothes movie, but I've never seen anything else about it. The animation is absolutely gorgeous. Look at the fluidity in those arms! I make everyone I know watch this, and I think they're starting to catch on to where I learned my sweet dance moves.
This one was actually posted on Facebook by a friend. I absolutely loved it! The drawings are gorgeous, but the animation doesn't need to be super smooth for it to be an incredible story!
If you want to discuss what sort of art, movies, animation, or aspect of culture you love in the comments, I'd love to hear about it! Post something you think is super cool!
