Augmented Reality: a dream for cartoonists?

Our readers know we like great 'old fashioned' cartoon books here on our blog. But as you've  noticed in our previous post about the Animated St. Trinian's, and maybe in some older posts, sometimes cartoons are transformed in... cartoons (animated cartoons). Animated cartooning is another discipline in the cartoon world and of course I do appreciate the work.

Here are some examples of cartoonists of whose cartoons were made animated cartoons. Click on the cartoonist's name to see some of their original cartoon work.

Guillermo Mordillo:



In the pipeline: Ronald Searle


Chas Addams:



Quino:



I saw a beautiful and inspiring  modern high tech approach of "cartooning" in a TED Talk video clip by Marco Tempest. Marco Tempest isn't a cartoonist: he's a magician and illusionist! His clips are inspiring and are a beautiful example a man's creativity.

I "discovered" Marco Tempest accidentally via the TED app on my new HD TV.



Here you can find some other inspiring clips using 'augmented reality' (TED Talks -  Marco Tempest)
