John K and The Death of Form
Ren and Stimpy creator and cartoon pioneer John Kricfalusi has posted a very interesting piece on the death of form. He uses toy design to demonstrate the decline of form after 1960. John also discusses the general decline of art and entertainment. Be sure to read through the comments with some funny and interesting posts from Eddie Fitzgerald and Marlo Meekins. While I don't think 'hippies destroyed western civilization', I do agree that having a firm grasp on traditional creative skills has become rare. Without this solid foundation any artist becomes limited in how they can express themselves visually.
