Thomas Jones Presents The Head of Froth
My work focuses on the obscene joke and the comic through the medium of animated cartoons. My cartoons are reminiscent in style to 1920/30’s Walt Disney Cartoons. My approach to this medium was influenced by the role of animation through my life and its position in society throughout the years. My specific interest was in the early 1920/30’s cartoons due to their imperfections and their disregard for realism. My cartoons were created through an appropriation of existing sequences and character movements which were then altered and reanimated.
For myself the cartoons and obscene joke enable me to express and portray what I otherwise would not be able to.
