Eric Goldberg Book

This is shaping up to be a banner year for animation instruction. Hot on the heels of the announcement of the Dick Williams DVD set, comes word that Eric Goldberg's instructional book will be published this summer. Goldberg has been working in animation since the 1970s and is the animator of the Genii in Disney's Aladdin as well as the director of the "Rhapsody in Blue" sequence of Fantasia 2000 and the animation director of Looney Tunes: Back in Action.

Copies of animation notes by Goldberg have been circulating for years. Those notes leave no doubt that this will be a major contribution to the animation instruction bookshelf. Here's the link at and at

EXCELLENT!!! I can't wait to get it. Eric is a great talent.

This is certainly a bit more affordable than Mr. Williams' set!

It's a brilliant move for Eric to include video samples. To write a book these days, people need to keep up with blogs!

Can't wait for this!

(PS & unrelated: I just got Popeye vol. 2. It was good to see you on there and hear you talk about animation again! I'd love to hear you do some commentaries!)
