East Coast Version

The Washington Post examines* how cartoon are made in Connecticut.

... Blue Sky artists had been charged with a touchstone assignment: Find “Peanuts” creator Charles M. “Sparky” Schulz’s pen line. Learn its beguiling grace and warm humanity. Director Steve Martino had sat in the Northern California studio where Schulz long worked, and had been gifted with one of the late cartoonist’s pen nibs. Martino had tried to reproduce that line himself, with that nib, and had felt like Charlie Brown trying to fly a kite: Repeated failings resulted only in becoming more entangled, when not being brought down cruelly to earth. ...

Amaxingly, the process seems remarkably similar to the ones used in California.

The corporate tub-thumping has begun. In earnest.
