Dear Amir – You’ve Come a Long Way

amir avni and john kAmir Avni’s short The Barley Way over on CartoonBrew the other day. Avni used Flash in the production of the beautifully-drawn short, but in the wake of the film’s launch, he’s found himself deflecting numerous “John K ripoff” comments. Say what you want, but the guy can animate and draw. And to get some interesting perspective on this topic, go back 13 years to 1998, when Avni mailed his now-famous letter to Kricfalusi. John K responded with wisdom and encouragement, and an internet phenomenon was hatched.
