Because I’m still so itchy from all my Texas sized mosquito bites, I’m dedicating this animation Wednesday to Winsor McCay’s “How A Mosquito Operates”. This short was created in 1912(!) at the start of animation history. McCay was known for his comic strips but became one of animation’s earliest pioneers. This was only his second film. A little animation history for ya.
If you enjoyed this, check out Mccay’s more famous short, Gertie the Dinosaur.
