Academy of Art Character Design Notes

Orlando based and former Disney artist Jennifer Gwynne Oliver just opened an interesting new blog which features discussion, inspiration, notes and links for her AAU students or anyone else interested in the art and craft of classical hand-drawn animation. Even my looney beaks attracted attention there. Lovely.

BTW, here is the brilliant sister blog Academy of Art Animation Notes by David Nethery. Cheers to Jennifer and David for their vision and efforts!
