This thing has apparently being going viral, but I’m posting it here largely as a reminder to myself:
I’ve not seen all of Ralph Bakshi‘s work, but his work ethic as presented here rings true through just about any creative media, not just animation. Writers and artists may not be able to rely on a computer to do a lot of the work for them, but then again, we’ve never needed a whole team of animators to work for us, either.
If you’re not familiar with Bakshi, check out Wizards, one of my favorite animated flicks. More people are probably familiar with Cool World (featuring an early appearance of Brad Pitt) and his Lord of the Rings adaptation, but I also dug another older flick of his called Fire and Ice. Good stuff.
