Happy World Animation Day!

Happy World Animation Day!

If you didn’t know, today is World Animation Day. I am celebrating at Vancouver’s artsy theater, Cinematheque, which is holding a free screening of Canadian and International animations.

Madame Tutli Putli

Don Herzfeldt’s rejected tv commercials
The Ghost of Stephen Foster
Creature Comforts
