In the coming weeks, I will issue an Executive Order requiring federal contractors to pay their federally-funded employees a fair wage of at least $10.10 an hour – because if you cook our troops’ meals or wash their dishes, you shouldn’t have to live in poverty.
Some great typographic animation examples here that seem to capture the energy of the city:
SHOW US YOUR TYPE is a project about two things: type and cities. The project started to provide a creative platform for designers to share their talents and explore cities from a different perspective. These animations should show the impressions of Tokyo. The different artowkrs are mostly animated and have a interesting view on the capital of Japan.
A Must-See Vintage Betty Boop Cartoon, 1931
The 1931 Max Fleischer cartoon Bimbo’s Initiation is a miracle of awesome, Fleischerian weirdness. It’s the last Betty Boop cartoon that was personally animated by her creator, Grim Natwick. It’s so delightfully bizarre that the film critic Leonard Maltin called it “the ‘darkest of all” of Fleischer’s work.
The cartoon starts with Bimbo seemingly being drawn into a college fraternity initiation. What Bimbo goes through is very dark — until he sees who’s behind the mask. Wonderful to watch.
