It's been awhile since my last submission, but that's because this one kept me busy for quite awhile. You might notice I went back to my old style of animation, I don't know, I just like the charm of a more basic approach. Thanks to everyone who sent emails and PM's, I appreciate all the support!
Vancouver (pronounced /væn%u02C8ku%u02D0v%u0259 r/) is a coastal city and major seaport located in the Lower Mainland of southwestern British Columbia, Canada. The city is bounded by English Bay, Burrard Inlet, the Fraser River, the city of Burnaby, and the University Endowment Lands. Vancouver is named after Captain George Vancouver, a British explorer. The name Vancouver itself originates from the Dutch "van Coevorden", denoting somebody from (in Dutch: "van") Coevorden, an old city in The Netherlands.
