Why did the children Will Sliney heard from have more free time?

文字稿

So my name is Will Sliney, I’m an artist from Marvel Comics. I’ve been working for Marvel for about eight years, and I’m best known for my work on Spider-Man and now Star Wars.

我的名字是威爾‧斯萊尼,我是漫威漫畫公司的一名藝術家。我在漫威工作了八年,我最出名的作品是《蜘蛛俠》和我目前正在創作的《星球大戰》。

You know the schools closed down in Ireland and everyone was a little bit down, but someone online had sent me a picture that their kids drew because that’s what they were doing with their time off and it brought a bit of a smile to my face, so I figured, you know, I could put a bit of direction on it and, you know, put up a theme for people to draw, thinking it would just get, you know, maybe a hundred or so drawings or something like that, but it really just took off, and now I have to keep up with the amount of people that want new challenges every day.

愛爾蘭的中小學停課了,大家的心情有些低落,但有位網友給我發了他的孩子們畫的一幅圖畫,因為這是孩子們停課在家時做的事情,這給我帶來了一絲笑容。所以我覺得我可以稍作引導,定下一個供人們繪畫的主題,當時我以為只會收到100來張畫,但這個活動一下子大受歡迎,而現在我得盡力滿足很多人每天都想要新挑戰的需求。

It’s all for a good reason, it’s all in really really good spirits, so that’s good.

這個活動的初衷很好,它充滿了正能量,所以很好。

With me working from home as well I suppose it’s a bit of a challenge when you’ve got kids at home that you need to keep them entertained. So, it was a bit worrying in terms of how [we would] the whole logistics would work out, but, yeah, with the help of Will and different initiatives like that it’s been really helpful.

「我也在家工作,這樣當你有孩子在家時就比較難了,因為你需要讓他們時刻都開心。所以,我們本來有些擔心具體該怎樣安排才能在工作的同時照看孩子,但有了威爾和其它類似活動的幫助,這給我們幫了大忙。」

One, it’s doing something creative that kids enjoy and they’re all learning from it,  but two, it’s really helping the adults seeing the drawings that the kids are doing. You see how happy they are doing them, everyone that’s shown a picture of themselves with the drawing there seems to be a big smile on their face and you can’t help but feel good after seeing something like that.

第一,這是孩子們都很喜歡做的一個創意活動,而且他們都在從中學習;但第二,它給大人們提供了一個可以看到孩子們作畫的機會。你能看到孩子們在畫畫時有多麼開心,孩子們在照片中拿著自己的畫,每個人的臉上似乎都洋溢著燦爛的笑容,看到這個景象後你會情不自禁地感覺很好
