I Do Cartoon Animation For a Living

A lot of people ask me how I got my start in the cartoon animation business. I tell them that I was fortunate enough to study with one of the guys who provided animated Betty Boop layouts backgrounds in the 1940s. It was truly an honor to work with someone who is a part of the history of cartoon animation. The amount of work that went into those early cartoons is amazing.

These days, if one wanted to do animated Betty Boop layouts backgrounds they would have the benefit of using a computer to help with the graphics. But back in the 1940s, everything had to be done by hand!
