Cartoon Concept Design Blog

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

Howdy, I started a new blog.

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.

Great to see you here Frank. That's a cool blog you have happening, along with the rest of the ones you're maintaining. I posted an article about Cartoon Concept Design on AN's homepage just now. Congrats!

Here's the dedicated article from September 28, 2011.

More people will find out about what you're doing now. It would be nice to have a link to Animation Nation included among those that you're featuring. We'd like to be associated with this blog.

Good luck and thanks for checking in.
