Ivan Ivanov-Vano

October 1, 2009

There’s something very magical and unique about Russian animation in general, and the work of Ivan Ivanov-Vano in particular. Inspired by classical opera, and utilizing two dimensional stop-motion animation, he created some incredibly stirring short films. He was also a big influence on (and mentor of) Yuri Norstein, another of my favorites.

For any readers that don’t know, can you tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do?

I’m a cartoonist—working in illustration, comics, and animation. Some of your readers might otherwise know me as “Jinx the Monkey” or “bobjinx.” I tend to make offbeat nonsensical images, both digitally and on paper. I also design games, films, and websites for an educational media company called FableVision. In a nutshell, I’m obsessed with comics and cartoons and I hope you are too.


The Fantastic Mr. Fox

I realize this isn’t related to comics or illustration, but what can I say. I’m a sucker for Roald Dahl, Wes Anderson, and stop-motion animation. I can’t wait for this movie.
