Proof - 5 Page:Cover

Drawing for Animation is your
guide to the act and art of drawing
in the creation of animated films.
Far from being a lost practice in an
era of computer graphics and digital
enhancement, drawing remains a
vital critical and creative tool in
animation research and practice.

Beautiful examples from the multi-
award winning work of Joanna
Quinn and Les Mills help explore
drawing in all its many roles – as
a narrative tool; in the revision
of traditional film language; the
expression of the various registers
of ‘reality’; and the centrality of
‘character’. Their work also shows
processes of origination through
drawing, and drawing as a vehicle
by which commercial briefs and
models of adaptation are achieved.

A range of case studies by leading
animation artists and scholars
including Peter Parr, Luis Cook, Paul
Driessen, Bill Plympton and Frédéric
Back address the application of
drawing in their creative, pedagogic
and communications projects.
Drawing remains central to the
creation of meaning and identity
in the contemporary era and
Drawing for Animation seeks out
and illustrates this bigger picture.

Professor Paul Wells is Director of
the Animation Academy in the School
of Art and Design, Loughborough
University. He has published widely,
including The Fundamentals of
Animation, Scriptwriting and Halas &
Batchelor Cartoons: An Animated
History (with Vivien Halas). He was
series consultant for the BBC’s
‘Animation Nation’, and has curated
animation programmes and exhibitions
as well as lecturing worldwide at
festivals, conferences and arts events.

Joanna Quinn is a major figure in
world animation receiving Academy
Award nominations for Famous Fred in
1998 and for The Wife of Bath
in 1999. Joanna has also won Emmys,
Baftas, and Jury prizes at many
animation festivals worldwide. She is
an honorary fellow at three UK
niversities and lectures at some of

the most prestigious universities and
film schools across Europe.

Les Mills first collaborated with
Joanna on her graduation film Girls
Night Out at Middlesex University.
He wrote and produced Body Beautiful
and produced The Wife of Bath which
received an Oscar nomination and won
three Emmys. He now runs their
animation production studio in Cardiff.
