Interesting article on Tex Avery

From the TAG blog...

Bright Lights Film Journal article reviewing Tex Avery's career.

A little over-wrought on the verbiage, but kinda cool. The writer does a fairly good job of summarizing a lot of how the overall style of cartoons developed back in the day. His observations on the evolution of the Disney style are quite solid. He contrasts this evolution to the way Avery turned those conventions upside-down for comedic effect.
