A Designerly Look at Toonland


Sharp-eyed Bob Flynn over at Drip! offers up a silhouette display of classic cartoon characters, reduced to pure shape. He notes his own attentiveness to positive and negative form when designing characters. I think his observation points to a critical fact, which is that cartooning (especially on the character level) may very well have more to do with design than it does with drawing. Characters are built more than drawn. Speaking of which, Drawn! links to Bob, too. Good work, Mr. Flynn!
