    John Kricfalusi blog - about style and skill in animation

    Just wanted to put a link here for this blog by Ren & Stimpy mastermind John K. The last couple of posts "Take It From Katie - an essay about style versus skill", "Influences Won't Help You Without Skill", "Take it From Shane-and join Cartoon Retro!" and "The Importance Of Having A Lot Of Influences" stand out on an already good blog. Definitely controversial, but have a look yourself.

    Yay!! And John K. mentions Genndy Tartaskovsky or however it's spelled: The old director of Dexter's Lab. Thanks for linking this, John.

    I didn´t find anything controversial. Just pure logic.
    Style is a niche you cave to fit yourself into.

    Tip to anyone who'll apply to a Kricfalusi studio, don't submit loose gestures.

    (He ranted about it before.)
