5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Inspiration, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this book after reading about it on the Author's website Cartoon Brew. It's filled with great pictures, great artwork and lots of interesting information about the animation companies from the 50s. It's a great source of inspiration for me, as an aspiring animator.

Now I keep it next to me when I'm working so that if I ever feel a lack of creativity coming on, I just flick through the awesome pages of this book and I'm ready to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love you Preston, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got turned onto this book from John K's blog, and it does not disappoint. The book teaches the importance of construction in animation and it's helped me a great deal in my general drawing also.

The majority of this book can be found in his other book though, Cartoon animation, which I got after reading this and seeing how good it was. So if you want to get the other book, that one does have this stuff in however it has very slightly different illustrations.

I personally prefer this one though, it's short simple and it's full of character.
