Here’s a blog I stumbled upon recently which I recommend to any artist: Animation treasures (or one1more2time3’s weblog…i’m not sure which is the actual title of he site). The author of the blog is Hans Bacher, an animation production artist. He actually has a book out called Dream Worlds. Anyway, the site catalogs visual references, shows production art for animated films and highlights lesser known artists. Great site to look at for inspiration.
