"In a move that shows just how much animation is impacting editorial cartooning, Ann Telnaes will end her print syndication this Saturday."Telnaes, a Pulitzer prize winning print editorial cartoonist, will produce three animations a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) for WashingtonPost.com.
More and more, editorial cartoonists are doing animations -- and submitting that work for awards consideration. Animated editorial cartoons and print editorial cartoons compete side by side for the Pulitzers and the National Cartoonists Society Editorial Cartoon Division Awards.
These are two different mediums. With one, you watch, passively, with the work flowing over you at the rate of speed predetermined by the animator. With the other, you control the speed and are free to linger on the drawing.
Link to the Ann Telnaes Cartoon animations at WashingtonPost.com. (Begins to play immediately. You see? I told you that you can't control the speed of the thing.)
