Cartoon Concept Design Blog

Postby FrankForte » Wed Sep 28, 2011 2:27 pm

Howdy, I started a new blog.

http://cartoonconceptdesign.blogspot.com/

Over the years I've collected tons of models sheets and concept design art from hundreds of cartoons. Aside from taking classes at with John Nevarez and Charles Z at The Animation Academy, Concept Design Acad, LAAOFA and others, I used these copies as my school. Me and other animation artists would trade stacks of copies with each other. I have boxes of this stuff. Hopefully everyone can get something out of it. Some of the model sheets like Batman, most everyone has seen, but I want this to be a collection of cartoon prod. art from the very beginning to the present.

Going to try and update everyday.

I'm currently doing boards on Bob's Burgers at Bento Box--before that I was on The Super Hero Squad Show at Film Roman and on Hero Factory at Threshold Animation.

Thanks

Frank Forte
