You may know of the Australian painter Norman Lindsay?
Was very controversial at the turn of the century.
He wrote and illustrated a classic Aussie childrens book called the Magic Pudding in which he puts a rooster in big pants like this.

I didn't know him but I checked him up and I was very impressed. He was an amazing draughstman in the vein of Heinrich Kley!!!!

che, pensaste en dedicarte a esto?, no te digo que te dediques a dibujo animado porque es jodido, y pagan poco, encima no apareces ni en los titulos,en fin.
si querés? te paso unos contactos pero ojo que son medio medio ..., viste como es.

Y del dibujo?, me llevas al día de hoy unos 26 años de ventaja, sumando unos más para estar a la altura de este, a mi favor, soy de River.

He caused great controversy by painting very sexy women with (supposedly) a wanton and lusty look in their eyes.
Sam Neil played him in a film called Sirens, which is not especially good but has plenty of bared breasts.
And yes - his work is similar to your Heinrich chap.
Lindsay was also a politcal cartoonist, a terrific caricaturist and a great author.
He's best known for a book called The Magic Pudding, which was made into a repulsive animated film a few years back.

I only saw the cover of this book, with some horrible lettering "enhanced" with photoshop filters.

Nowadays I find MOST animated films "repulsive"...I keep saying that is a medium for idiots made by idiots (And I am one of them in both accounts)
I only make an exception and that is "Ryan"...The rest of them, starting wih ALL the japanese efforts, can be buried in the sea with no great loss to culture. (Yes, and I also mean the overblown Myazaki's animations as well!)

Si, Viruta...Podes dibujar con lo que quieras...Picasso dijo que si lo encanaban y le ponian cadenas todavia dibujaria con su lengua en el polvo del piso de la celda.

Inma, "Ryan" is an animated short by Chris Landreth that won the Oscar in 2005. It was in the web not long ago and you could have seen it there. I am not sure if it's still around.
I also reccomend you to watch "Fast movie..You'll find it here:

Thanx, Oscar. I have seen "Fast movie" and I just loved it. I am trying now to get "Ryan" from e-Mule.
Cheers, Inma
