ICYMI: Highlight Posts of 2014

Just though I’d toss this up here. I had a lot of fun writing/researching stuff this year, and I hope people found the content here useful or at least fun. Here’s an icymi list of links to some of my personal favorite 2014 pieces:

And also, if you haven’t read the first magazine article I scanned this year – Amos Wong’s Satelight piece – I highly recommend you do so. It was pretty informative regarding the politics of early CGI in animation, still probably my favorite one I scanned. I count myself as lucky I happened upon that particular page of that particular NTUSA issue while browsing a used bookstore; odds are the other 250-something scans of articles on this site don’t happen otherwise.

  1. I link/post your charts quite often. They’re the sure fire way to tell people “their opinion a shit.” To an even better 2015!

    Happy Year of the Goat!
