Please read Liz Prince. You can do it! You'll thank yourself.

This is marvelous - T-T-Tartamudo for you and you and you!!

I am glad I read Drawn! because that's where I heard about this.

They also feature the new JibJab animation about Obama. To my eyes, it is funny but it sure looks a LOT like some animation I have loved and watched over and over, the astonishing Stevie and Zoya adventures by Ace Conrad. Maybe Ace works for JibJab now? What do I know. But it looks to me like they should tip their enormously influential Hat to Mr Conrad in the microsecond before they launch into their infomercial selling e-cards.

This is pretty much what Facebook is for. So I can find out about artists such as Scott Campbell, etc etc. The rest is pooty.

Except for Someday Funnies of course!

Chris McDonnell at McD Studios makes some good mess. In case you are not ready for lovable animation.

Lovely animation by Stefan Gruber, if you are in the mood for loveliness. Perhaps you have had a hard day. Here.

This looks jazzy, don't you think?

Well... this fellow Shane Prigmore pretty much sums up why I love animation. And art. He is in charge of making characters have emotions. What sort of job is that? That is a job? Wha?

YOW! Mat Brinkman's astonishing serial comic MULTIFORCE, which was in Paper Rodeo back in the day (what, four years ago?) is now finally available as a book! Well all right!
Never thought of looking for Seth Scriver's stuff in youtube until today. Der!

Plus, I like this postcard by prolific Fantagraphics book editor Jacob Covey, and it also looks like Seth's postcards. So I thought it sort of fit.

I hope everyone loves Thomas Herpich drawings as much as me... but did you know he shares a blog with his brother? And that his brother is also very spirited and talented?

Now you know!

Drawn videos by Marc Bell? Awesome! Where? Here! Great!

Sorry I'm Late! great stop-motion from Tomas Mankovsky - thanks to Boing Gboing for finding it first... I especially love the "making of" trial runs. Next snow day with the kids, I know what we're doing.

More cleverness here. Warning: robot movie comes with an EASTERN-EUROPEAN-STYLE SAD ENDING. Don't share with small children unless they are nihilists already.

Why would someone who is 19 years old be able to do this? It is a marvel and a wonder.

More here... thanks to Warner's lawyers for removing the sound. I'm sure Herbie Mann is breathing a sigh of relief.
