UPA Style Trees





This year, my treat to myself is art lessons from Bob Singer. I want to learn how to draw in the UPA style. UPA was the animation studio that produced Gerald McBoing Boing and Mister Magoo. It's a flat style, full of textures and exciting colors.

If you want a treat spend some time wandering through http://cartoonmodern.blogsome.com/ You'll find a treasure trove of beautiful pieces.

Draw on!

  1. Cartoon trees! I love the orange one - it looks like a 1960's hairdo. :)
