I, the great and glorious Kalmon, have again been very clever, an old friend of Thok, who also used to be a film Animator ended up here in the old pensionist head quarters at "Tranehavegaard", and he had a book with pictures of the old geezer Thok as a young man doing animated paper sculpture for Halas and Batchelor in London, way back in the 60es. The tittle of the book is "Art and Animation" by John Halas. I managed to borrow the book and in secret scanned the pictures so I can brag about how I helped Thok, when he was going insane trying to learn how to do 3-D animation on the tabletop
