  1. I could watch Oliphant draw all day. What skill! Another cartoonist I could watch draw all day would be Walt Kelly, especially when he fit four complete characters in an action shot in ONE panel.

  2. To Ann Telnaes: not many can draw as well as you do, either. Also thoroughly enjoy the animation and enjoy watching a video of it on the Post site.

  3. Thank you; I really appreciate your kinds words. I have been feeling the need to get back to those invaluable life drawing classes again, especially after seeing Oliphant’s drawings. Kal’s right, though- Oliphant is a master. No one comes close.

  4. “No one draws like Oliphant” There’s some French guy
    named Honore Daumier who kinda did. Sculpted like Oliphant

    I had seen this footage before on another program. But never
    get tired of it. Didn’t see an editor around. Does he keep
    them in a closet in his studio?
