They sure don’t make them like they used to, for better and for worse. The innovation and sheer people-power at the start of the industry is mind-melting, and along with Disney, Fleischer Studios was at the forefront. Who doesn’t love a good process video, and who doesn’t love a good Popeye cartoon?

I am mighty excited about the new Jim Guthrie album Takes Time.

Dan Berry created this music video for the song The Rest Is Yet To Come, and over at Dan’s site he has an informative process post detailing the various stages of its creation.

Watching Lewis Trondheim erase masking fluid is more captivating than you’d imagine.

La magie du drawing gum. (pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas, c’est un liquide épais qu’on étale où on le souhaite, puis qui sèche, ensuite on peut le recouvrir d’encre, gommer l’ensemble et récupérer ainsi le blanc du papier)

There’s a lovely interview with Bob Staake over on Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. I always love seeing process evidence, and Bob has posted a lot of it over the years. One shocker from the post is that while he planned to take 43 days to complete his 2012 follow up to 2011’s Look! A Book! (not surprisingly called Look! Another Book!), it actually took him 48 days. If you have seen either of these books, you’ll be scooping your jaw off the floor along with me - that’s an incredible amount of drawing in a very short amount of time. Now I see why he is so prolific!

But the thing I’m most excited for is Staake’s new book, Bluebird, coming in April. It looks gorgeous, and the buzz makes it sound as if the story, told wordlessly, is touching and powerful as well.

And I’m sure we won’t need to wait very long for the next thing he is working on - keep up the amazing work, Bob!

You all know Becky Dreistadt’s work, don’t you? And you know how prolific she is with her amazing gouache paintings and painted comics?

Well, the folks at Rainn Wilson’s Soul Pancake made a time lapse of one of her recent paintings as she made it, and they were kind enough to slow the action down for us. That’s how time lapse works, right?

Is is okay for me to say that I was mesmerized and cursing out loud for the entire movie? No? I’ll keep that to myself then. Awesome work, Becky!

I love Lamar Abrams' comics, both the Adhouse Books -published Remake and Remake Special, and his own Ferzan series of self-published mini comics. But lately I’ve been in love with Lamar’s Instagram feed. There’s plenty of the regular stuff you expect from that kind of thing, food, cats, etc., but Lamar puts up a lot of pictures of things he’s working on, from thumbnails to inked comics to digital work onscreen. Lamar’s style is SO stylized, but still so conversational and relaxed, that there’s something really fascinating about these little up-close glimpses of his work. Not to mention it’s really shown me what a strong draftsman he is, which it’s easy to forget when you’re laughing at his jokes.

If you’re on Instagram check him out, he’s “neo_rama”. Instagram is alone maybe in being one of the most popular social networks that it’s virtually impossible to link to from outside a mobile app (?!?), but there are numerous mirror sites, like this one, to check Lamar (or whoever) out on, from any device.

Here’s Quentin Blake demonstrating, step by step, how he makes the illustrations for his books.

It’s from this great page on his website, How I Draw, in which he describes the process a little more:

In the attempt to combine planning with an air of spontaneity I’ve employed various techniques of which the one I have found most successful, and have used for the last thirty years, makes use of a light box.

What happens next is not tracing; in fact it’s important that I can’t see the rough drawing underneath too clearly, because when I draw I try to draw as if for the first time.
