How To Animate is a series of 26 books containing everything I have learned so far in my 33+ year career. This book, “How To Teach Yourself Animation” is the gateway to all the others. It will show you what skills you need to learn to become the kind of animator that studios are looking to hire without having to spend tens of thousands of dollars going to school. The other books in this series will teach you all of those skills. By the end of the book, you will have a solid plan for success, including a description of the wide variety of skills you need to learn and how to find the resources to learn it all as inexpensively as possible. We will cover ways of discovering your own personalized method of learning, daily training techniques, and how to fast-track your learning to cut years off of your training time.
Young animation students and animators in their early 20’s from around the world. Students in countries without large schools of animation like India and Mexico.

When you get tons of designs and ideas for a book cover, all very good, it's hard to decide on a winner. Yet Nic.vlad did an outstanding cover that caught my eyes from the first moment. Great designer - Hope to work with him again in the future!

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
