Cartoon History

Cartoons have a very long past and have been around now for over 100 years. They were first show back in 1908 By a french director Émile Cohl. The first cartoon to be aired prime time was the Flintstones. Since we’ve talked facts lets get down to what a cartoon really is. A cartoon is a two-dimensional series of pictures making a video. Over the time people have just thought of cartoons just as a Non-Realistic or Semi-Realistic drawing or painting, even though most cartoons are made for humor.
Someone who creates a cartoon is branded a cartoonist. In the 19th century cartoons were mostly funny articles or “Funnies” from the newspaper. Early years of cartoons were made by cavemen in their caves and their drawings tell stories like modern day cartoons do. The Silent Era from 1908 to 1918 never had sound in the animations. The Golden Age from 1930’s to 1960’s have cartoons like Looney Tunes and Tom & Jerry. In 1937 was when the first featured color and sound cartoon by Walt Disney came out. Competition from television cartoons were bringing down the theater business.

Animations are very popular in commercials, due to graphic detail and humor. .A certain type of cartoon art style is Cel Shading. Cel Shading basically makes computer animations look hand drawn. It’s used to imitate comicbookdrawings. Cel Shading commonly comes up in video games.

Another very popular art style for cartoons are “anime”. Anime is Japanese cartoons and computer animation. The word ‘anime’ is an abbreviation of the word animation. Anime is also very well known in comic books called “MANGA”. Animes Were first released to America in 1980. Both hand drawn and computer animation exist and are still done to this day. The very first anime was filmed as a short film in 1917. It was also cel shaded.

Pixel Art, one of my favorite types of animation or picture types, will be the last type I cover. A pixel artist is a graphic designer who specializes in computer art and can refer to a number of artistic and professional disciplines which focus on visual communication, presentation, and video games. Pixel art is a form of digital art created through the use of raster graphics software where images are edited on the pixel level. Pixel art was very often used in older computer and Console games from the 80’s and 90’s.

The Search for Candied Island

When Jack and Jill Jones went in search of the legendary Candied Island, evidently they found it,

because they got caught up in all the candy and got scurvy. Luckily, none of them had their adult teeth in yet. They are now grounded at their house, and Jack and Jill’s parents are making a profit from all the candy that they’re selling. The money is currently going towards their dentist appointment and their college fund.

My app Review of GpsPhone

My favorite app is GpsPhone. It’s a app that Emulates a Gameboy advance, a portable game system made in 2002. This is my favorite App because you can get all the games from 2002 to 2006. This gives alot of people (like myself) a nostalgic feeling playing games that I used to as a kid. Some people use it only so they can listen to the excellent 16 bit Music like myself. Overall it’s a good app with few bugs that has a great emulator of my childhood.

*you need a jailbroken device and cydia to get GpsPhone*

SCHOOL DEBATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The school board is considering reorganizing the school week. They are suggesting that there be four school days rather than five. Each school day would then be two hours longer. Support your position for/against this issue.
