Learn to create an animated flip book from start to finish, from brainstorming and storyboarding to drawing, adding color, and more.

Flipping Out: The Art of Flip Book Animation describes the adventurous art of flip book animation for cartoonists interested in drawing their own handheld, moving-illustration booklets. Learn to create an animated flip book from start to finish, including brainstorming, storyboarding, penciling, inking, and coloring. After a short introduction to flip book animation and a basic description of the most effective tools and materials necessary to begin, Flipping Out: The Art of Flip Book Animation guides readers through the brainstorming and storyboarding process, a process similar to that of modern animated shorts. Aspiring cartoonists are then introduced to a unique, animated drawing style, starting with pencil and then graduating to colored pencil, ink, and watercolor. Once readers have developed a simple storyboard and basic cartooning skills, they are invited to create two of their own keepsake flip books provided with the book.
