HAPPY 90TH BIRTHDAY TO ART CLOKEY

Today is Art Clokey's 90th birthday!! He is the creator of Gumby, and one of my favorite artists working in the clay medium. He experimented in stop-animation, and paved the way for claymation as we know it. He had such a positive message in his works based on true virtue and altruistic values, which he brought to the storylines of Gumby and to those watching the shows.

Check out Gumbasia, the short film he made in art school that anticipated the creation of everyone's favorite clay dude, Gumby.
