ANIMATION ART

popeyeToday is the official publication date of the new book ANIMATION ART which I participated in as a writer and General Editor.The book is a 384 page “coffee table” book, a lavishly illustrated general history of worldwide animation, attempting to touch upon every significant filmmaker, event, studio, trend and technique during the last century. It also has a groovy giant eyeball on the cover (that wasn’t my idea).The book was written by a number of animation experts, including myself, Harvey Deneroff, Michael Mallory, Chris Robinson, David Gerstein, Keith Scott, Graham Webb, Mark Mayerson, Harry McCracken, Fred Patten, Will Ryan and Ray Pointer. If you need a crash course in animation history – this one’s for you. To order it from amazon.com, click here.
