Why should an illustrator join an animation group?

Classic Illustration Kay Nielsen

What do these illustrators have in common? Gustaf Tenggren, Mary Blair, Kay Nielsen, Harper Goff and Eldon Dedini… They all worked as concept artists in animation.

Why should an illustrator be a member of an animation group? Because the fundamental principles of design used in animation are the same as the ones used in illustration. The fields of animation and illustration have a lot to offer each other. Animation Resources is committed to acting as a bridge between a wide range of related creative fields.

Every other month, Animation Resources members receive an e-book full of high resolution images. Past e-books have featured L’Illustration magazine issues from the mid 1930s, steel engravings by Gustav Dore, the woodcuts of Hans Holbein and the German Art Nouveau magazine Jugend. But that’s not all. There are plenty of other reasons for an illustrator to be a member of Animation Resources.
