Satoshi Kon - Editing Space & Time
Tony Zhou : “Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.”

I was asked to submit art for the Pee-wee Herman art show at Meltdown Comics last weekend, so I drew my favorite beatnik puppets!
New Cartoon Silhouettes
Back in 2008, I assembled 34 famous cartoon characters to see how easy it would be to identify them based only on their silhouettes (posted here and here). It was a fun exercise, and I definitely learned something. It recently occurred to me to revisit the idea with NEW characters from the past few years or so. Now, it’s tricky to find the best poses to silhouette out (I didn’t draw any of these). That surely biases how recognizable they are. But this is what I’ve cobbled together after a few hours of searching: 36 new characters, filling an identical layout. A couple are paired up.
The new set and the original set are posted above.
Can you spot them all?
I suspect the new set will be harder unless you really watch a lot of new cartoons.
