The digital times they are a-changing

Returning visitors may know that from time to time I like to think about changing forms of creativity in drawing, and now is one of them. Some good and interesting things are starting to happen in the UK media which are really encouraging to see. Patrick Blower, who used to work at the Evening Standard when it still believed in publishing print news cartoons, has developed a method for drawing in a video which you can find, weekly, on Friday’s, at the Daily Telegraph website. My colleague at Channel 4, Beau Bo D’Or has been branching out from his still photomontage into moving photomontage and is having a good deal of success with it. I have my own explorations in a hybrid form of print and simple animated cartooning and it must be working, as the notorious Guido Fawkes is starting to ‘borrow’ stuff – see below’s screenshot web clipping from his site.

I am absolutely positive we three won’t be the last either…on either issue. I note Mr Fawkes’s support of the open digital rights group with a sort of smile.
UPDATE: Beau Bo D’Or writes (and comments)It’s Guido’s second offence. He used my Channel 4 animation without permission from C4 or myself. He ran it directly from my server which nearly crashed my site.

    Did you use the cartoon without contacting you or Channel 4 first?!

    …or as the English speaking population would’ve put it: “Did HE use the cartoon without…etc”

    It’s not for me to bill him.

    But I can do something like this :

    Hahahahaha! Blogged. How nice to see the leeching tea-leaf getting a taste of his own redirection medicine… especially considering that he’s currently bitching at the Telegraph about them ‘stealing’ an image (that he sent them in a press release).
