Amir Avni sent me this:
I just read an article with a genius quote from Warren Buffet:
“We found that the real trick in business is not to be a genius yourself but to go around associating with geniuses who are already doing a good job and stay out of their way.”
This directly relates to all you've said about the environment/conditions in which the greatest cartoons where created (Schlesinger's studio, etc..)
I hope we can find someone like Warren Buffett who wants to make cartoons!
Warren and Amir each deserve a Slimy for that:
