Frank Tashlin’s How To Create Cartoons Is A Must Read

Watching Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom yesterday, I thought of Tim Burton a couple of times, Monty Python once, and Frank Tashlin every now and then (though, of course, the majority impact was of watching Anderson do “Anderson”, chasing his own tail in an ever decreasing circle).

Tashlin was an animation director who brought his wonderful eye, and many elements of his cartooning technique, to live action. I’m a very big fan, and recommend his features Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter and The Girl Can’t Help It without reservation.

Another of Tashlin’s works was the book How to Create Cartoons, a copy of which has been scanned and posted online. Why isn’t this still in print? It’s beautiful.

Here’s a sampling of pages, almost at random.
