ARTIST’S NOTE: With his feature films “Waking Life” and “A Scanner Darkly,” director Richard Linklater helped popularize digital-effects technology (known as “interpolated rotoscoping”) to animate live-action footage. In visual tribute to those movies, this story about Linklater — believed to be The Post’s first-ever fully illustrated interview — loosely mimics that rotoscoped aesthetic.
