Full disclosure, this post is a shameless self-promotion. Not going to lie. But it’s also (hopefully) useful as well! Today I had the joy of launching my first book, and it just so happens to be on creativity. Though creativity isn’t one of the official 12 Principles of Animation, it should definitely be the honorary 13th.
Creativity is, unfortunately, something our industry is missing a lot of much of the time. We get a unique new film now and then, but it’s quickly followed with sequel after sequel. Hey, I get it, animation is a business. But it should be a creative business.
Having been written by an animator, there are a lot of animation-related stories and quips. It’s a book suited to any style of creativity, though, and if you’d like to hear more about it you can do so right here! It’s currently on a pay-what-you-want model as well, so check it out. Thanks for letting me share. 🙂
