Help John Kricfalusi make real cartoons again!

  Growing up in Brazil I was blessed with the best cartoons ever made. The Brazilian television wanting to save up money would not buy the 70's and 80's crapy cartoons and instead they would use the old cartoons from the 30's and 40's. We only had the really popular shows from the 80's like He-Man, Thundercats... besides that, it was all old cartoons, old Disney stuff, Bugs Bunny, Woody Woodpecker, early Hana Barbera, it was all I would watch. I want to make good cartoons again, and there is only one man capable to "Kickstart" that, John Kricfalusi.

  "Cans Without Labels" (John's project) could be the renaissance of animated cartoons. If this gets made, it may lead to an entire movement and cartoonists will make cartoons again. Help John save my carer choice, so I can get a job doing what I love. Be a PRODUCER of George Liquor's cartoon can's without labels.

John Kricfalusi Storyboard Audition pt1

So... this time I focused more on the characters, and try my best at "continuity". I am having a blast working with these characters. I feel like little by little I am learning how to draw them more "on model". I see you at Taafi! Thanks

A Gag to John Kricfalusi

Here is my gag for John K's workshop. I can wait for my first trip to Canada and my first class with the legend John Kricfalusi. I have learned more from your blog than all year of University. I wish I was paying him, not my student loans. Thank you for the great opportunity John!

Animation Outsourcing

There is absolutely no reason to outsource cartoons. Cost is irrelevant. Realistically how much more expensive are we? The greedy corporate brains fails to understand how quality will make up for that cost difference. Every step in making a cartoon is a potential creative process and the animation step is the most important of all. It is where the acting takes place, and acting is what connects the audience to the characters. Hiring Tom Hanks won't save your shitty animation! What you see now is a snapping pose to pose with stock expressions and visuals that don't match the audio (acting). The solution that this assholes came up to mend the lack of visual gags and pretty much visual everything, was to hire a bunch of soap opera writers to write cartoons. Compare the new "Looney Tunes" show with the originals. All they do is talk! I don't need cartoon characters to talk! Real people can talk, so why even bother with animating here or in Indonesia or anywhere. If all they do is talk. Family guy could be a radio show! Try just listen to the audio, its better than watching, and you can draw some real animation at the same time. The reality is that nobody is actually making cartoons anymore. There are attempts to cartoons, made by soap opera writers. Cartoonists make cartoons.

If I offend any of you soup opera cartoon writers... good.

here some good acting by Master Clampett
