Glen Keane Draws

Glen Keane lectured at CalArts a couple weeks ago. Below is a short video of Keane drawing the Beast and explaining some of the design ideas involved in the character’s construction. If you’ve got a lot of free time, you can watch an older Glen Keane lecture on YouTube; beware though, it’s broken down into 18 parts.

    I was at this lecture and indeed it was very inspiring. Glen Keane, although humble about his work, is definitely one of the greatest animators alive.

    Yeah, he made some really good points about illustration in general.

    I’d go further and say he’s among the greatest in the history of the medium.

    I’d love to see a tome, analogous to Canemaker’s 9-old-men book, devoted to some of Disney’s current talent, including Keane, Deja, Sanders, Henn and others. Thankfully, we have magazines and blogs for the time being.
