Too good. Too funny.

Great metaphor. Its all to true animation producers don't usually care for the creative aspect of any cartoon just as long as they secure profits.

By the way John why not make a cartoon starring George Liquor on Animation industry metaphors with chainsaws and other weapons. That will teach both children and adults about the industry.

I actually have a hard time believing how awesomely you draw. Thanks for the great blog!

They definitely don't care about profits.

If they cared about profits, they'd make better cartoons.

"They definitely don't care about profits."

If they don't care about creativity or profits than what do they care about? Their agenda. Are they mad bent on something?

You know the films with the highest budget don't always turn out as the best. I think that companies with a higher budget can become to focus on marketing, detail of the film, and not the pure cartoon essentials.

They don't care about anything. They are incompetent. Why do you think they know what they're doing? Where are you getting that idea? All I see is evidence to the contrary.

I really truly appreciate your insights and drawing tips! I am unemployed and therefore I am unable to donate, but rest assure you, I am truly soaking in your wisdom and sharing it with my peers! Keep up with the sharing of your knowledge!

MIGS!

Ha Ha! these drawings are incredible! The one where everything gets cut in half wrong is hilarious.

George looks like he could take on a few deadites with that chainsaw. Groovy!

I love that the trees (in the 6th frame) have asses! That's funny as hell!

Movies and television no longer target the general population. Just like the music industry it targets specific markets. Preteens, Reality show addicts, and soccer moms. The rest of us who think logically and live in the real world aren't viable consumers. Entertainment is about selling merchandise to idiot consumers. Those of us who want good entertainment are too smart to mindlessly collect crappy useless merch.

I noticed this drawing is much cleaner, did you create an overlay, or is this straight from the noggin'? Great work!

There must be at least some films out there which were high in budget and turned out critically successful at the same time.

Producing must be really hard work making sure the studio uses their time, effort and money wisely, right?

The Artist Aficionado said...

Believe it or not folks budget does not always match great cartoon quality.

The Artist Aficionado said...

"Producing must be really hard work making sure the studio uses their time, effort and money wisely, right?"

Well some of you guys are saying there not using any of their assets wisely. Than this guy says the opposite.

Make up your minds. Producers in their very nature are the ones that manage the production and money to see that everything is going smoothly and profits turn out. Of course they care about profits.

JohnK said...

Unfortunately, they absolutely don't. They only care about their own salaries and their promotions.

It's not their own money they are spending, so they freely waste it all the time.

The Artist Aficionado said...

"It's not their own money they are spending, so they freely waste it all the time."

Didn't early animation producers spend their own money. I'm referring to the ones of the thirties and forties. Like Fleischer, and Disney they cared what happened business wise.

Because it was more a self-financed art-form back than instead of some stupid commercial enterprise that we have today.

Correct me if I'm wrong John.
