I found this incredible Akira blog on Tumblr which features original cels, layouts, backgrounds and other materials from the 'Art of Akira' exhibit. It got me thinking about mechanical animation from days gone by, the kind of stuff that would just be done on computers nowadays. Looking at some of this stuff and realizing that someone drew that is just an incredible thought.

I am almost saddened at the idea that stuff like this may never be seen again. This is not just because it is faster and cheaper to do such work on computers. It is also because the guys who have this skill are getting up there in age. New guys coming into the industry only know about doing this work on computers. The very skills needed to do this may soon be lost to the ages.
