Bill, Joe and Friz sound off pt 2
Hear the radical thoughts of 3 of the most conservative directors from the golden age of animation!
Usually I draw my caricatures out of the tabloids, like these 2 below.
The other day we had to go pitch our ideas for web cartoons so Katie and I spent a day drawing these full color presentation boards from some of the cartoon ideas I told you about earlier.
Here's some folks with taste that ordered caricatures from me:
LIVE SINGING!! by actual cartoonists
OK, here we go kids. If you haven't already drawn all the drawings from lesson 1, then don't proceed to this lesson. You need to already have a firm grasp of solid construction before you can start stretching the crap out of your drawings. Otherwise they will look like mush.
Thanks to Marc Deckter for the images!

JOHN KRICFALUSI TRIBUTE. With his landmark 1991 TV series "Ren & Stimpy," featuring the demented, wildly anti-social and hilariously inappropriate antics of the two title characters, Canadian-born animator John Kricfalusi (b. 1955) kicked modern cartooning in its underpants, starting a myriad of trends: the gross-out subversive cartoon ("Beavis and Butthead," "South Park"), the thick-lined flat retro cartoon ("Dexter’s Lab," "Fairly Odd Parents," etc.), the caricatured revival of classic characters cartoon ("Boo Boo Runs Wild," "The Flintstones On The Rocks"). After revolutionizing TV cartoons, Kricfalusi followed up by inventing internet cartoons in 1996 with "The Goddamn George Liquor Program" and developed the techniques for Flash animation that are used at practically every studio today. A selection of "Ren & Stimpy" by the animated cartoon’s modern pioneer. [Approx. 2 hrs. total.]
The Aero Theatre is located at 1328 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica.
John Kricfalusi will introduce the screening.
