This episode is sponsored by TV Paint.

Created in 1991 by Hervé Adam, TV Paint was developed to create digital 2D animations as closely as possible to hand-drawn animation and to make it accessible to everyone.

Now used by artists, animation schools, and major film studios all over the world, including Cartoon Saloon who used it to create their feature film Wolfwalkers, TV Paint has many powerful tools that can imitate real-life painting and drawing techniques like gouache, watercolor, pencil, and more.
