Willard Mullin

The essence of any drawing is the gesture. This we see emphasised over and over again. A recent printing of Walt Stanchfield's notes focuses a lot on this aspect.

Nobody could have absorbed this better and applied them in their work than sports illustrator Willard Mullin (1902-1978). His drawings are an study in gesture, action, force, energy and expression. All that goes into Animation drawing.

A nice little bio can be found here.

Mullin contributed to the Famous Artists School course. His lessons on drawing animals can be found here.

Here is a picture set on Flicr.
