Floyd Norman, the first black artist at Disney, animating on Sleeping Beauty, 1958
He’s still around, too. He’s a cool guy and has some pretty hilarious books satirizing Disney and the industry. Y’all should learn more about this awesome dude!
Cartoon Network has unveiled a poster for Steven Universe, the new animated series by Rebecca Sugar:
Slated to debut in 2013, Steven Universe is a coming-of-age story told from the perspective of Steven, the youngest member of a team of magical Guardians of the Universe. The animated series was conceived as part of the shorts development initiative at Cartoon Network Studios, and is created by Emmy and Annie Award-nominated writer and storyboard artist Rebecca Sugar (Adventure Time). Sugar is Cartoon Network’s first solo female show creator.
Oh ish, WAY too excited for this. “Sugar is Cartoon Network’s first solo female show creator.” <— also didn’t know this?? THAT’S GREAT!
“Sugar is Cartoon Network’s first solo female show creator.”
Amazeballs. Proud. Happy.
This looks so awesome! Can’t wait to watch!
Hopefully they don’t cancel this one. It sounds really good.

By using petroleum based paint Takashi Masubuchi is able to slowly apply small drops of the acidic paint to gradually eat through a huge styrofoam cube. The result is a magnificently bizarre spectacle that feels almost organic and is kind of disturbing to look at.
