More About the Author
Blair was one of the fine artists of animation. With the Disney Studio, he designed and animated the hippos in "The Dance of the Hours" and animated Mickey Mouse in the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" (both in Fantasia), parts of Pinocchio, and the segment in Bambi when the owl tell about love in the "tiwitterpatted" speech.
At MGM, Blair directed Barney Bear shorts, and is well known as the animator and designer of Red Hot Riding Hood in the Tex Avery epic shorts. Later, Blair moved to Connecticut and produced television commercials, educational films, and half-hour cartoon episodes (including the Flinstones) for West Coast producers. More recently, he was an inventor of interactive TV systems using animation methods to teach reading or to provide full-figure game action that simulates reality--for example, playing tennis with an animated opponent.
Blair died in April 1995 at the age of 85.

and what Christ was to Christianity.
Never, has there been a more consice, understandable method for presenting
the secrets of Cartooning, Illustration, and Animation anywhere.
Not at any price, not at any University, and not by anyone else. Ever.
Blair's book"Animation", originally sold for One Dollar, in every art supply store in America.
Nearly every Animated Cartoon from the 1930's to Toy Story has felt his influence.
No true Art Professional has Ever been without this book, nor would
part with that dog earred original copy purchased at the dawn of his training.
For us, and al of Animation , there is the Sun, the Moon......and Preston Blair's "Animation".
