Blogging Some Animation Backgrounds


Longtime friend of 2719 Hyperion, Rob Richards has started a wonderful new blog featuring one of my favorite subjects: Animation Backgrounds. In Rob's words:

"Animations backgrounds create the world where cartoons come to life. In traditional, classic animation, the backgrounds are often masterpieces in and of themselves. In this new blog I'd like to share backgrounds I've re-created, so animation enthusiasts can enjoy their incredible beauty."

Rob inaugurates his efforts with detailed looks at backgrounds from Mary Poppins and The Jungle Book. Head on over to Animation Backgrounds and take a look at what is often one of the more overlooked categories of animation art.
