New Blogs from animators Pat Ventura and John Celestri

Run, don’t walk, to bookmark these new blogs from two respected animators:

• Pat Ventura (Oh Yeah! Cartoons, Muppet Babies, etc.) just began posting on VenturaToons, showcasing his wild animation cartoon drawings.

• John Celestri (Rock & Rule, Raggedy Ann, etc.) has started blogging as John The Animator Guy, where he discusses his animation career and artistic influences.

Two great animators, polar opposites in style. They’re new at this, so check out their blogs and encourage their presence on the web.

  • Steve Stanchfield

    Great stuff!

    I’d love to see some of John’s stuff frame by frame…maybe a quicktime version on the blog? I love the blur frame stuff in the monkey animation.

    I love Pat’s designs too!

    I use to like Pat Ventura’s ‘What A Cartoon’ shorts. Particularly Sledgehammer Opossum shorts like ‘Out & About’. His animation style had A crude charm to it which made them fun to watch.
