Interesting style. Never saw puffy cloth animation. Sad and telling story.
Reminds me of a conversation between two college aged people, that I overheard on a bus years ago. A guy was talking to the woman about riding a bike. I heard the woman explain how her mother was really into bikes. She wanted to please her mom and learn to ride, but her mom sucked as a teacher. She must have said things like, "just balance" and other subtly discouraging things. The woman concluded with, "thatís why I donít ride bikes."
Now I have 3 daughters, two of which can ride and the third who just turned 7 will learn this year. Iíve been careful to not ďmake them likeĒ to ride. Since the love of riding is really something that comes from within.
They all like to bike, even the youngest and she is still on training wheels or the 5 speed tag along.
