You didn’t think I’d stop blogging, did you?
In a week or two I’ll be launching a new permanent blog over at Cartoon Research.com – and THIS is not it.
This temporary blog is just a life raft, a place to keep my posting juices flowing while I get things ready behind the scenes.
In addition to the new Cartoon Research blog, I’ve got plans for another website… but I’ll tell you about that later. First things first.
For the moment, I’ll use this basic WordPress blog to continue doing what I’ve been doing elsewhere. Check in with me everyday and I’ll have a few new things for you. I’ll keep you informed, enlightened – and hopefully entertained.
Thank you all for the outpouring of support – and for following me over here. I promise you won’t regret it. Consider yourself a charter member of my brand new super-secret cartoon club.
For animation-lovers only.
Just to get things started – and just for fun – here’s a rarely-seen 1938 Nicky Nome advertising short for Chevrolet.
I know it was produced by Jam Handy’s studio in Detroit, but I don’t know much more about its production. It’s so perfectly on the level of a Hollywood cartoon or the era, its hard to believe some of this wasn’t freelanced out to the East or West coast. Anyone know who directed this; or who animated on it?
