Education: How To Be A Cartoonist In 16 Easy Pages

Armed Forces Cartooning Brochure

Yesterday, one of Animation Resources’ most faithful friends Sherm Cohen stopped by with a contribution for our collection of vintage cartooning courses. It’s hard to imagine packing a whole course in cartooning into sixteen 4×6 inch pages, but this pamphlet from WWII attempts to do just that. There’s plenty of GI type humor in here… I’m sure the suggestion to sketch the anatomy of the men in the shower was made with tongue firmly planted in cheek! There’s a lot of fun drawings in here. Enjoy!

April 24th- Discord Discussion: Less Explored Genres of Animation

Animation Resources Discord

Animation Resources is hosting monthly Discord parties on its Discord server. Join us the last Saturday of every month to participate in discussions and network with fellow artists from all over the world. The party starts at 4:30 pm (PDT) and the program begins at 5:30 pm.

THIS MONTH’S PROGRAM

Animation Genres

Our schedule of monthly programs under the banner Discord Discussions continues Saturday April 24th!

We’re used to seeing certain types of animation: funny animals, superheroes, princesses, anime, and so on. We’ve seen live actions films of every genre, but when have you ever seen an animated horror film? We know animation does comedy and action well, but we’ve only begun to scratch the surface of the medium’s potential in other genres. Join Animation Resources President Stephen Worth and Board Member Davey Jarrell this Saturday, April 24th, on Discord as they discuss the possibilities of animation in less explored genres. We’ll break down the techniques and impact of the animated horror film “Borley Rectory” as well as some 20th century Russian propaganda films. All of the films being discussed are in the current Reference Pack. Doors open at 4:30 PDT and the program starts at 5:30 PDT!
