This two-volume set is the complete series of animation lectures by legendary Disney artist, Walt Stanchfield. Regarded in the animation industry as a one-of-a-kind primer on gesture drawing, the books offer a definitive look into the craft of animation. Packed with rare illustrations, readers not only gain insight into animation techniques and styles, but also get a peek into Stanchfield’s philosophy on life and art. As a veteran animator who took part in the Disney Animation Renaissance of the 1980s and ’90s, Walt virtually raised a generation of animators like Glen Keane, Andreas Deja, John Musker, Ron Clements and John Lasseter. Suitable for use as a textbook or for pure inspiration, the two volumes of Drawn to Life are a must-read for animation enthusiasts.
