Nick Anderson posts animated editorial cartoon

From Nick Anderson’s blog comes his first animated editorial cartoon while at the Houston Chronicle.  The cartoon touches on the Republican redistricting in Texas and last weeks related ruling from the Supreme Court.

From his blog:

Welcome to the Houston Chronicle’s first attempt at online animation. We finished the bulk of this animation about six weeks ago, in anticipation of the Supreme Court decision. We had three alternate endings, depending on which way the court ruled. We only had to animate the last 15 seconds once the ruling was handed down last Wednesday.

This is a relatively simple first attempt. The animations will grow in complexity over time. At first we plan to offer these monthly. As we get better, and learn the process, we hope to increase the frequency.

Nick joins a new trend among editorial cartoonists that have begun adding the animator title to their list of accomplishments.  Other animated editorial cartoonist include: Mark Fiore, Mike Shelton, and Walt Handelsman.
