Samples of the handouts I created and pass out to the students I have taught and am currently teaching, These have been given out at Sheridan, at Associates In Art in LA, now sadly defunct, and Nanyang Polytechnic in Singapore.
It's carrying on a grand tradition..I always enjoyed getting such stuff from my teachers way back when.
Seems a bit old fashioned in this day and age, but the information is never outdated. Good drawing and how it's done will never date.
I have a ton of these...might try to get hem all together in a book sometime.

More Hunchback

A few more bits from Hunchback while at Disney. These are all workbook drawings. Workbooks were given to the more experienced members of the team, and a lot of political capital was invested in them within the dept. They varied from show to show and supervisor to supervisor. Sometimes they they got so elaborate that they became unwieldy. I got the first one out of the gate on the show, so that was bit of a coup.

Ye Olde Hunchback

1993: doing freelance in Toronto, after the tour in Ireland with Bluth. Hollywood calls, in the form of Walt Pisney Features, asking me to work on The Huncback of Notre Dame. Arrived scant weeks after the Northridge earthquake. Roy Conli was producing, Dave Goetz had snagged the art directorship. Went in as journeyman Layout Person. Here's the evidence.
