Cartoon Saloon Schools St. Patrick’s Day

Diving deep into Irish culture and mythology, with an artistic eye to the globally warmed world outside, has never been so stunningly beautiful.

Ireland’s indie animation studio Cartoon Saloon has been proving this with skill, wisdom and talent to spare over the last several years.

From director Tomm Moore’s Oscar-nominated masterpieces The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea, to director Nora Twomey’s The Breadwinner and beyond into the great unknown, the indie studio that was once international animation’s best-kept secret is a secret no longer.

I’ve written extensively about the Saloon’s world-changing cartoons for few years now.

Keep an eye out below for more of my coverage, and another eye on directors Moore, Twomey, and more, as they continue to transfix and transform the Earth, one open mind, and heart, at a time.
