Rejected Cartoons

Following the theme of 2D drawing for this week, I chose the animated short film Rejected Cartoons by Don Hertzfeldt. It's a 9-minute film with the concept that Hertzfeldt created this series of 30-ish second shorts for The Learning Channel, but were rejected. I particularly like this short because a) while the animation itself appears very simple, with most of the characters being basic stick figures, making me feel better for my lack of drawing skills and b) it always surprises me to rediscover that it was nominated for an Academy Award in 2000 (for Best Animated Film Short)
