Cartoon corner: straight from the strip
From the strip to your screen via a whole bunch of pixels, there’s a lots and lots of great animated cartoon work to feast your eyes on, brought to life by a growing array of talent that continues to push the limits of the pencil, brush and an array of other resources.
Continuing our on-going series Cartoon Corner, we take our pick of some fresh short creations that caught our eyes, and lit a few lights in the window of imagination. We hope you’ll appreciate the effort involved, and take the time to reflect just how much great work there is to shout about.
Rather than stare blankly at your screen (our out the window daydreaming), enjoy this latest strip of cartoon creations as we take in a whole bunch of fun from creators in the Netherlands, France, USA and UK.
