A Talking Editorial Photoplay by Ann Telnaes


Everybody go over to The Washington Post , slide down to Hillary's Fairy Tale on the middle left, and click on it to enjoy the animation genius of Ann Telnaes. Quick!

UPDATE: I switched the link to a direct-to-Annimation link.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Here's Ann's animation for Friday . For some reason the page is balky for loading, give it a kick or two and it comes through fine.

It was still there when I checked: Fairy Tale

It's very cute, yet biting. Bitingly cute, I suppose. Do you know if Ann does the Flash animating herself?

Yes she does!

Thanks Randy, I made the link direct. But still, watch for another one on Friday.

Ann writes, draws, and animates? That's simply awesome. She has certainly raised the bar, and now I'm expecting Cul de Sac as a daily animation. I want to see Mr. Otterloop's chin wiggle, dang it!

Randy, you're scaring me. Ann's trained in this stuff (CalArts) though she taught herself Flash animation.

Now that I know Ann taught herself Flash and animated this on her own, I like it even better.

Merci beaucoup, Guillaume! Je n'est parle pas francais, despite a couple of years of trying to learn in junior high.

Schulz and Blake! I feel like I'm walking in tall cotton! I'll go look at your blog and link up, too.
