I remember Jamie Hewlett from his Tank Girl work. But when he partnered with Damon Albarn to create the first, successful virtual band known only as the Gorillaz back in 2001, he was forever etched in illustration and animation lore as one of the greats. Ahead of it’s time (after After Watanabe’s Sharon Apple of course, lol), the Gorillaz went on to successfully sell over 7 million copies of their debut album, break a Guiness World Record and withdrawn Mercury Prize (at the band’s request). Their followup went 5 times platinum in the UK alone and 2-times platinum in the US, nabbing 5 grammy nods and winning one.

This was one of my favorite videos!

LIFE Magazine has released online 850 photos taken in November 1960 Hanna-Barbera studios during the early days of production on the Flintstones.
The photos include voice recording sessions with Mel Blanc (Barney) and Alan Reed (Fred), photos of Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera with their families, photos of the both of them working with writers, artists, and lots candids of all the various people who worked at the studio at the time. This is an amazing and unprecedented look into what it was like making cartoons in this time in history, really the find of the year for animation enthusiasts.
Above are only a couple. We see an female inker working on a cel of Fred, another photo of an inker working on a cel (at her home!), animator Carlo Vinci animating a scene, Bill Hanna having a barbecue with his family, and a few of the studio workers who had formed their own bowling league, “the Yogi Bears”.
