Ralph Bakshi on Surviving in Tough Times


When I first posted this video a little over a year ago, it flew like wildfire through the animation community. But I think it has something to say to all creative people.

I had the opportunity to interview the legendary Ralph Bakshi at the San Diego Comic Con. Ralph was in "pitch mode" talking a mile a minute about all the things he was working on at the time. I got the chance to get one question in, and Ralph swung like Babe Ruth and hit it out of the park. Every once in a while, I watch this video again to remind myself what it means to be an artist.
