Animation is something that needs the pencil

Hayao Miyazaki on computers and animation:

I think animation is something that needs the pencil, needs man’s drawing hand, and that is why I decided to do this work in this way… Currently computer graphics are of course used a great deal and, as I’ve said before, this use can at times be excessive. I will continue to use my pencil as long as I can.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why the man is a master.
