Am I correct in thinking this is how those animated rulers I used to use in grade school were made?

jacquilynne, you are correct, although those examples aren't very vintage. I forgot about the rulers, I was thinking of the crackerjack toys tho.

This Japanese site (in English) has a lot more info on creating lenticulars or starting a lenticular business in case you want to make your own rulers.

Wow, that is some bad art.

Howard is a great guy. You should hear him sing karaoke! While his work is maybe not technically great in the comic book art way, he pursues it with amazing energy and his output is prodigious to say the least.

Disclosure: Howard is a member of my circle of friends, and he commissioned me do to this piece.
