Children's Book Illustrations Part 3
Man, things are getting a bit tight but I will keep you up to date. Monday of this week I was invited to a Boy Scouts (Troop 80) meeting to talk about animation. Being the unfortunate procrastinator that I am I basically put a quick power point presentation on a brief history of animation. I put in a lot of Disney names out there but was unable to put the less "famous" studios as well. I showed them my "professional" cartoon colour light box and did a brief explanation on how to animate in 2D. I was going to post some things on Tuesday but the internet LAN is in my sister's room and she was sleeping so now I am posting today. On a different note I think I will discontinue the mystery pic but instead will try to post my own work with explanation. Since nobody likes to post comments apparently or they are too lazy or busy. The first mystery pic is actually suppose to be Tom Baker of the Doctor Who TV series for some reason I become quite fascinated with that show since I never really heard of it before and I am a Science Fiction Geek. On another note what this post is about one is a Disney Golden Book while the other is learn pictures with words book. The Disney Golden book was made in the studio and I am curious if Burny Mattinson made it since I was recently listening to the podcast (there is a link to the side of my profile, go check it out!) In the picture book I found that I learned what a Newel Post is...See if you can figure out what it is. One more thing to top of this post for Best Short Animated Feature The Danish Poet won! This is exciting since there was a presentation at DeAnza Community College where we actually saw in person Torill Kove and another producer if I am not mistaken which I didn't catch her name where we saw the actual movie The Danish Poet. So congratulations Mrs. Kove on a job well done!
