    The animated movie musical is back in vogue, according to the Los Angeles Times. The biggest sign of the change has been on the music charts. “For the first time in 20 years, a soundtrack from an animated film has been No. 1 on the Billboard charts for 10 weeks. This week, Disney’s fairy tale Frozen displaced 1994′s The Lion King to become the top-selling animated movie soundtrack of all time. It’s not the only music from an animated film that’s hot right now: Happy, Pharrell Williams’ ubiquitous mood booster from Despicable Me 2, has been No. 1 on the…

    The celebratory parade for the opening of the last major train station in the U.S. of A. Union Station opened in 1939 in downtown L.A. Then, it was a major railroad hub. Today, it's a railroad station and a focal point for Los Angeles's urban transit system. It now contains trolleys, subways, and the ever-popular choo-choo trains. ... The footage shows downtown L.A. on May 3, 1939 when Union station opened for business. Photographed by Ward Kimball, one of Walt Disney's Nine Old Men (long before they were nine old men.)

Their story goes like this: They worked on the animated feature known as Frozen (and many of them on earlier features), and now they're at liberty. (The company's choice, not theirs.) So they've now discovered that everyone who's labored on the picture, and is still a Disney employee, gets a nice fat bonus check. But they get nada because they no longer work for the company. For some reason I've received a few e-mails and phone calls about it. ... And I, good…

    For such a technologically sophisticated company, Pixar hasn’t done the best job keeping their website up-to-date over the years. The site got a sleek redesign two years ago, but it still remains rarely updated; Monsters University was listed as an upcoming film as late as October 2013, for example. This week, Pixar finally updated the upcoming features section of their site with a listing for Finding Dory – over a year after its announcement – as well as an extended description for Inside Out. The new synopsis mostly retreads what we learned from last year’s D23…

View From the Tower Restaurant, 1986 I’d worked in Sydney animation studios since 1982, saving money for a trip to Japan. By mid 1986, I’d got my passport, bought a Japan rail pass, and after years of dilly-dallying was preparing to finally go. But before I’d bought a plane ticket, Janine Dawson offered me a job in Taiwan at a big animation studio. Despite years of saving, I was still functionally broke, as my limp 1986…

I’d already done a lot of lefty drawing at home, (including some illustrations for my childhood stories on this blog) but had not ventured outside to draw from life until last September, when both Julia and I went drawing for a couple of consecutive weekends at the SF State campus, just a couple of blocks from our apartment.

    I have recently been wrestling with re-learning how to draw. The loss of my former ability has led me to reflect on what drawing has meant to me in my 30 year career as a cartoonist, and how and why I came to be so interested in drawing in the first place. Back when I was very little, when my active interest in drawing began, there was no ’creative’ person in my family, apart from my Mother who played piano, and certainly nobody that drew. However, my Father enjoyed cartoons, whether in magazines or animated films, and I remember being endlessly fascinated at a very young age by the idle…

Firstly, on Saturday, Julia and I went to Yerba Buena Gardens to draw: I ‘ve sketched here before (a study of the church you see here) but this time I tried an overview. The angle I chose was from the terrace, where there was ample seating in the sunlight, which was needed as it was a chilly day, despite being sunny. The park itself is down below, behind the pond and seagulls, obscured from this angle. So there is some weird foreshortening that my crude left-handed drawing may…

    Apart from our recent location sketching, Julia and I have also been sketching from TV shows, and a recent fave is Downton Abbey, starring the wonderful Maggie Smith. In my opinion, she steals every almost episode as the dowager Countess, Lady Grantham. She inflects every line with subtle flaring of nostril, tilt of head or withering of stare, that imbue her character with equal part haughty snottiness, dry humour, and wry wisdom as the scene requires. She is so much fun to watch. This sketch here was my attempt at a straight portrait with my left hand, but my cartoon roots betray me, and…

    This just in from Caitlin Brown:[I thought you might be interested to know that Swann Auction Galleries in New York will offer a charming Disney poster at its Modernist Posters auction on April 24.The poster is one of the few early Disney posters with a prominent cross-marketing pitch – in this case, Pepsi was an official sponsor of Disneyland from opening day, 1955, through 1990.  (Lot 142, $700 - $1,000).]

    I have just received my review copy of Charles Solomon's book about The Art of Disney Golden Books. This beautiful book is all that I expected: the text is a little bit too light for my tastes (for an in-depth history of the Golden Books, pick up Leonard Marcus' seminal volume, Golden Legacy: How Golden Books Won Children's Hearts, Changed Publishing Forever, and Became An American Icon Along the Way), but the nonetheless very well-written text is not why the book exists. Its heart is clearly the artwork, which is reproduced beautifully and which you have never seen this way before.From my…

  • Creating Great Characters by Thinking from the Inside Out

    mark kennedy
    12 Apr 2014 | 12:45 pm
    One of the key aspects of being an animator is that you really need to know who a character is and what their personality and character are before you can animate a single frame of film. How does this character think? How does this character move? Do they do things deliberately and methodically...or abruptly and instinctually? Are they a passionate character? Or more reserved? Exuberant? Or more contained? Of course, what they're thinking and feeling in each particular scene has a profound effect on all of that as well.The consequence of not considering all of this is that you will end up…

    A couple of commenters pointed out that they thought the "How to Draw Comics Comic" post was a bit underwhelming and not the best example to show as advice on how to draw comic books. To be clear: I was not posting the pages as a way of saying that they were the greatest resource ever created on making comic books. I thought that when I discussed the questionable pedigree of the book, that much would be clear. My motivation in posting it was more in the vein of making it available as a rarity for people who've never seen it. Yes, "How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way" is a better resource (and…

Apparently it's been floating around the web for a while, but I made some high resolution scans so I think these are better than what's been out there.I'm always a sucker for any kind of book or tutorial that talks about the artistic process and gives you insight into how any artist works, even if it's kind of remedial and basic. I just like seeing the process of other artists, and as I always say, there isn't much to drawing except the few basic concepts that make up the core…

I hear a new one may be coming…Anyway, those rigs saw so much use and people used them all over the world. We hired so many animators based off the work they did with those rigs. We always wanted the students to create their own characters from the base rig. That was the beauty of it. Nowadays its hard not to recognize the school from the rig. The biggest mistake you can…

    Borislav, a graduation film out of The Animation Workshop in Denmark, is a brooding, gorgeous new work. It’s almost entirely dialog-free, and produced digitally, but with a painterly production design that obviously took countless hours to create. We meet a couple, years into their relationship, that struggle to connect while the husband wrestles with demons below the surface of their local lake. The film was created by Johan Steén, Clara Baidel, Mads R. Ahm, Edith Bach, Michelle N. M. Kristensen, and Dionysis Douliakas.

In a section on Laurel and Hardy, he has this little tidbit: Most comedy teams had an authority figure to balance a rebellious spirit– a straight man to rein in the comic. But not Laurel and Hardy. Ollie thought he was in charge and acted as though he were a parent or older sibling, but, of course, he clearly wasn’t. Innovating, Laurel and Hardy deployed someone outside the team to play the straightman. Jimmy Finlayson, popularly called fin, was the outsider they most often used. Finlayson…

    Osamu Tezuka’s first graphic novel “Shintaka Rajima” (1947)One of the things that the early C/FO in the late 1970s noted about anime was that the Japanese animation industry seemed to love Robert Louis Stevenson’s boys’ adventure novel Treasure Island (serialized in the Young Folks children’s magazine during 1881-’82, and published as a novel in May 1883). There were three recent anime versions that we knew of, two featuring funny-animal casts.
