Animation is an exciting field of endeavor with a long and varied history. It is a growing field that cross references aspects in all other fields in some way or another. This blog is a look at the state of the art of animation and related subjects from my (mostly optimistic) perspective.
Some general conclusions up front:
- Everyone can enjoy animation. (Animation created with a strong foundation in the principles is going to communicate better)
- Everyone can be creative. (The more you write, draw and explore the better you’ll be at it)
- Computer Graphics (CG Animation) is here to stay. (Use it to best advantage)
- The art of hand drawn animation isn’t going away. (Prove the theory: Draw some animation on a piece of paper today!)
