Animators Galore

Here are some links to blogs by animators. They give good advice on animation. Carlos Baena works for Pixar, and I was fortunate enough to attend his talk in CG Overdrive 2006 in Singapore. Brendan Body was linked in Carlos Baena's blog. I plan on reading both blogs religiously for the sake of learning more in animation and finding inspiration to start creating my own personal works.
