Winsor McCay

Winsor McCay is heralded as one of the great comic artist of all time.

He also is one of the pioneers in animation. Anybody who has ever watched a cartoon owes it to him.


I never heard of him before today. His hometown in Canada is having a Winsor McCay day in his honor and some of the comics I read online all revere the guy.

And then I found the below video and my jaw dropped.

In summary that is full hand drawn animation using FULL COLOR in 1911.

My mind is blown.
