Animated Drawings

Draw The Dog

OMG.  And I don't say that lightly.  OMG, this was the funnies thing I've seen in a while.

(I must confess up front that I found this site through The Pioneer Woman's site.) 

Former Disney Animator Jim George draws out a cartoon using photos people send of their dogs as inspiration.  Then he puts an animation of how the cartoon is created online for our amusement.  It's incredibly captivating to watch the artistry shape the cartoon in front of your very eyes, and the cartoons are pretty funny too.

So he started with this inspirational photo:

 Then this is how the cartoon started to appear.

As an artist (or at least I consider myself one), this is awesome to watch.  I love how compelling it is for young kids (Bug and Bunny love this).  It helps make art relate-able and interesting for people of all ages.  Check it out, and let me know what you think!

Seriously.. Thoughts?
