Eminent animation historian John Canemaker wrote a lovely tribute to animator Tissa David for the Wall Street Journal. It’s packed with great insights, including this quote from David: “Animation is such a long, hard work. You have to keep doing, doing, doing to learn. You can only have one love if you want to be an animator: animation. You can’t devote yourself to it part-time.” Tissa David passed away last week at the age of 91.
