In case you all didn't already see this posted anywhere, please visit Daniel Caylor's blog "On Animation" and see his post of the complete Famous Artist Course booklets. If you're not familiar, it's an artists course from the '60s , founded by Al Dorne and Normal Rockwell. It's 24 lesson booklets, downloadable as free PDFs of great, classic, illustration techniques and tips. It covers everything from the basics and artist materials, to composition, form and painting techniques. I haven't read them all, but for anyone who still considers themselves a student, they're sure to be a fascinating read! And we can all probably pick up a gem or two from lessons created in part by Norman Rockwell and Al Dorne!
Get 'em while they're hot!
