Cartoons – not so static after all

February 12, 2013 in General, News

It is sometimes assumed that cartooning is a purely static medium.
One of our members, Robert Duncan, shows this isn’t the case in this three-minute plus video celebrating the work of the writer and cartoonist Edward Lear.

If you have seen any other good examples of cartooning as a moving medium please post them into the comments below.

  5. Of course, Morten Morland’s animations are a bit special: http://morlandcartoon.co.uk/Morland_Cartoon/Animation.html

  6. and here’s a very old one of mine, done at the time of the Lib Dem leadership fight and featuring the new go-faster Lib Dem bird, based on Road-Runner. The two pieces of music are from the early morning school holiday programmes I watched as a kid, Belle et Sebastien and The Flashing Blade. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVCEuBOgwmw

  10. Bravo, Mr Duncan! Encore!

  11. lovely, lovely work – without (presumably) spending a year making it – although there’s still an awful lot of work in it.
