Composing the collection of drawings
La Boîte à Cells, I realised there was not really a
French-speaking site devoted to Tex Avery. And, as often, majority of
the existing Anglo-Saxon sites was intellectuely poor.
I am not a specialist in animation movies.
It is thus extremely possible that some of my remarks can be
disputed by experts.
I conceived this site around a first wish: to pay the best
homage possible to a man and a team, of which works have the merit to
still make me howl of laughing, not very current thing nowadays. However,
I found in the work of the texan very interesting elements on
the nature of violence. Permanent concern of my personal search, it
influenced certain parts of my comments.
The option taken to redraw the totality of the images will be
disputed by certain visitors. I was explained myself on
my Web site illustration conception in several occasions and I can only
refer you to my book Réussir son site Web (in french) in which they
are summarized. I realized all of my drawings from screen-shots of Avery's cartoons.
However I must confessed some visual loans to the enthralling book of Patrick Brion
Tex Avery (Editions du Chêne).
If we make exception of an intense period for cartoon vision
and long hours of search on the Net, the development of this
site lasted approximately one month.
Tex Avery at M.G.M.'s forms part of a vaster
site, called Alphabestiaire. Thanks to visit it, some pages are in english.
