This extraordinary volume examines the life and animation philosophy of Maurice Noble,
the noted American animation background artist and layout designer whose contributions
to the industry span more than 60 years and include such cartoon classics as
Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century, What’s Opera, Doc?, and The Road Runner Show.
Revered throughout the animation world, his work serves as a foundation and reference
point for the current generation of animators, story artists, and designers. Written by
Noble’s longtime friend and colleague Tod Polson and based on the draft manuscript
Noble worked on in the years before his death, this illuminating book passes on his
approach to animation design from concept to final frame, illustrated with sketches
and stunning original artwork spanning the full breadth of his career.
