I discovered a series of videos that profile New Yorker cartoonists.
Those featuring Rob Mankoff were particularly interesting. He has an informed opinion that is really worth listening to. What he has to say is fully applicable to animation. Intermixed with some of the clips are short animations produced from New Yorker cartoons. There are hundreds of those animated cartoons on youtube in the channel RING TALES
I love this line: “The line between humor and bad taste is your audience”
