Kaltooning update…

A little while back I wrote about political cartoonist Kevin Kallaugher’s 3D animation project.
Most people with any interest in this, have probably seen it already, but there’s a little presentation film here that shows you how it works. It’s essentially the Spitting Image without all the frantically sweating puppeteers!
I still think the puppet making is too laborious and complex for this technique to catch on in any major way among other cartoonists, but the end result is very exciting.
When the whole thing is digital, I think you have a pretty good picture of the future of political cartooning. Not necessarily the prettiest picture, and certainly not the entire picture, but probably a major part…

Any views?
