Something Rough

Something pretty, pretty rough...

Apropos rough and drawn (drawn being the operative word), Jerry Beck posted Gene Deitch's keynote-speech-video for the Xiamen Animation Festival here: Gene Deitch: Quo Vadis Animation?

This is btw a sort of manned crittered kite balloon. Some inspiration came from here [>>].

Here's another piece of inspiration. A painting (this dates from 1913) by one of my favourite artists, the Austrian painter Jos Danilowatz ("Motor in der Karikatur", ROB Verlag Wien, 1925).
