Animator Jim Tyer

President Emeritus Tom Sito admires Mr. Tyers' animation style ...

Mr. Sito writes:

My friend Chris Liles found this great tribute montage to Jim Tyer (1904-1976), an animator with one of the strangest personal styles of his generation. He is most well known for his work at Terrytoons. The bizarre rubbery gyrations of his keys are a favorite of many eclectic animation artists. If Milt Kahl was the ultimate in control, Tyer is his antithesis in his wildness.

In terms of wild, loose animator styles, you have Tyer, Rod Scribner and Emery Hawkins. ...

And then there are Jim Tyer comics.
