“Silent Sillies” by Anthony Hunter

I’m a big fan of retro-animation tributes – here’s a clever one in comic strip form. Ohio-based cartoonist Anthony Hunter has begun posting Silent Sillies (“A silent cartoon… in comic strip form”) one each week on his new website.

Hunter has a whole cast of period characters and illustrates a different silent animation cliche each week in cute and clever ways. Here’s a sample:

  • AM

    I’d watch this guy. Lovely chap too. Did an art trade with him as well. Fun stuff!

  • Bryce Prevatte

    I like the clean line work and clever old school joke.
