The Must-(Not)-Have Animation Book of 2005 The Must-(Not)-Have Animation Book of 2005

Here’s a book that’ll put you on the successful and rewarding career path of becoming a corporate whore licensing artist. DRAW THE LOONEY TUNES: THE WARNER BROS. CHARACTER DESIGN MANUAL is a reprint of “the textbook used by in-house artists to learn the ropes at Warner Bros.” The book includes vellum overlays, landscape four-color foldouts, vintage cartoon stills and step-by-step instruction. The introduction is by WB Consumer Products president Dan Romanelli. Nothing like having the executive responsible for “Gender-Confused Tweety” (see below) introduce a book about properly drawing classic WB characters. I’m ashamed to say it’s from my publisher, Chronicle Books, but hey, nobody’s perfect, right?
