More About the Author

Preston Blair was a native Californian from Redlands. He attended Pomona College, then studied art at the Otis Art Institute and illustration under Pruett Carter at Chouinard Art Institute (now California Institute of the Arts). He exhibited widely as a member of the California Watercolor Society and the American Watercolor Society in New York.

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.

Preston Blair is to Animation, what Einstein was to Physics,
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".

Was given this book by my cousin when I was 5 years old - I still own it and it's helped me all my life in drawing and understanding motion, weight, volume, pacing and mouth positions for animating talking - a treasure for sure I am so lucky to own this first edition copy.
