Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
If you've seen Mighty Mouse, Heckle and Jeckle, or Popeye or have watched Sesame Street, then you've seen Beckerman's work. Considered one of the fathers of animation, he worked for over 30 years in the legendary studios of Terrytoons and Paramount Famous Studios and now teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York. In this comprehensive guide to the art, business, technique, and history of animation aimed at the aspiring animator, he covers drawing, using color, creating interesting characters, working with storyboards, creating a soundtrack, and more. For a book on just the graphic aspects of the art, see Kevin Hedgpeth and Steven Missal's Exploring Drawing for Animation. For solely digital animation, see Steven Withrow's Toon Art: The Graphic Art of Digital Cartooning. For those seeking the whole story, Beckerman's book is highly recommended.
