Props from Lines and Colors

It's been a good week for back-pats. One of my (and many others) favorite art blogs, Lines and Colors, has written a blush-worthy post on Tor.com's Saturday Morning Cartoons.

"These shorts are from a variety of creators and sources (though many are sponsored by the national Film Board of Canada), and traverse the spectrum of subject matter, style, emotional tone, animation technique and cinematic direction.

They share one characteristic, they are all terrific examples of short form animation, and a treat to watch."

Although my involvement in Tor.com runs pretty deep and is always rewarding, the Saturday Morning Cartoons are a little extra special to me. It's my own quiet corner of site and has allowed me to indulge in a love of something that is completely unrelated to work. (Something I should do more of.) I am extra proud that Lines and Colors has highlighted it.

And a call for help/inspiration. If you have any animation suggestions, please mention them here. I've discovered a lot of great movies from you guys.

And, and, a shout-out to a few of the great sources I have been filching from:
National Film Board of Canada
Vague memories from a History of Animation class with John Canemaker.
Cartoon Brew
Tickle Booth
Drawn
Gobelins
+ a whole lot of internet hopscotch
