Twit Archive 25-31 August 2011


Above, a frame of animation drawn by John Kricfalusi, from a post at Uncle Eddie’s Theory Corner succinctly titled John Kricfalusi: Genius! And the short piece of animation that Eddie shares there is indeed extraordinary.

More links from that time in the tweets below the fold, on Libya, Mali, Syria, Bahrain, Afghanistan, and a few more art links too.

@punkyscudmonkey Would've thought that meant turning down new deals, not no to money from old deals - not that I care that much about it!

@punkyscudmonkey Wouldn't that differ from deal to deal? Lucas set example on Star Wars. Y'think JK Rowling gets naught from W. Bros merch?
