Hey John,

I stumbled on this link of a bunch of Gene Hazleton cartoons from a series called "Angel Face." I thought they were worth a look if you hadn;t seen them.

Hey John did you ever talk with Ken Duncan about doing a cartoon? Also I downloaded a bunch of Eisenberg's Chip n Dale comics and tons more of his. They look great! Ever seen those? If not I can make a blog and upload them for you and anybody else that's interested.

What was up with live action backgrounds in this cartoon ?

Zoran Taylor said...

How is that an "illegal" cut? Too creative for a cartoon?

Zoran: Crossing the axis/ 180 rule. It's one of those rules you can break but you should always know that you're breaking it.

Hey John, I've done some new constructions...
But I forgot how to make the clickable link:S

But I still hope you'll take a look.

How's it going with the book?:)


Zoran Taylor said...

Ryan - Yeah, I can see how that works now. But it's not even close to the weirdest cut Clampett ever did. I'm grinning right now picturing him as live-action director: "CUT! *turns the camera two degrees* ACTION!"

David, that was me that uploaded those years ago.

Great post, John. Cartoons are allowed to break these rules, most films aren't.

Unless you're John Ford in Stagecoach.

Hi, I’m trying to get more links for my new blog about cheap toys and I feel that your site is not only pretty cool but also is in some ways related to mine; hence I thought it would be beneficial if both of us could do a blogroll link exchange (or inpost links exchange if you wish).

I would propose a non-reciprocal link exchange to gain more credit from google (I got 3 other toy blogs). Please let me know if you’re interested. My email is buycheaptoys [at] gmail [dot] com

I should have known it was someone who lurked around on this site. Thanks for putting those up. How long did that strip run?
