I can’t imagine characters more fun to draw!
Looks like Fred Seibert is sharing a whack of stuff on Scribd, for various animated shows, including scripts, storyboards, media kits, and character bibles like this one.

Stephen Silver offers us this glimpse at his latest efforts for the Schoolism online art classes. The Masters Series: In the Studio With… is an ongoing documentary/interview series conducted by Stephen in the home studios of some cartooning greats. The first episode features iconic MAD Magazine caricaturist and parody artist Mort Drucker.
Stephen is as passionate about teaching others to love drawing as he is about drawing itself, so this is sure to be a great collection.
This short clips only whets my appetite for the full video, which will set you back $40.
Work In Progress is a blog that shows comics pages coming to life from initial sketches to finished piece, with various stages in between. The images are all in Flash, and we see them blend seamlessly into each other, which makes for an interesting effect. The blog is in Spanish, but you certainly don’t need to be able to read any of the words to appreciate the work here.
Shown here, the work of Enrique Fernández.
I have certainly used InDesign to package finished comics projects, but since it’s primarily a page layout tool, I have never seen it used for any sort of drawing. In this video Gareth Hinds shows how he uses InDesign’s vector pencil tool to do the rough sketching and layouts for his comic book adaptation of The Odyssey.
This is the first in a series of videos for which he plans to share the other steps in his comic-making process.
Paper folder Won Park makes seemingly impossible works of origami out of American dollar bills. Check out the koi; not only is it shaped perfectly, but Park managed to even give it eyes and scales.
