Excellent drawings. Thank you for posting. Mullin is a great cartoonist with very lively drawings.

On a separate note, I have a few questions to ask you:

1. What classes do I have to take to be an animator?

2. How would I go about applying to an art school like CalArts?

3. How do I apply to a studio like Disney?

Just send me an email please, if you're not too busy.

Hi Weirdo

in answer to your questions:

1. take good anatomy and life drawing courses. Also, get whatever CGI training you can, it's here to stay.

2. I didn't go to CalArts so I don't know. You should check their website.

3. If you want to apply to a big studio, going to art school first is almost mandatory. Your portfolio, and any animated tests or films you make at school will be your calling card. The schools generally are quite helpful with this. If you can't get into art school full time then a program of art classes might make a good substitute, but organizing your portfolio and/or having a decent DVD of tests is crucial.

I wish i had more to offer but because I am not currently involved in any studio recruiting programs I am out a constantly changing loop.
