i spent way too long yesterday looking at animation books in archive.org and i stayed up way too late making silly gifs, but it's so fun & i need fun right now, dammit! 

so i found a book online by preston blair (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preston_Blair), who was mary blair (awesome-sauce disney artist)'s brother-in-law, called  "cartoon animation"

(if anyone is interested, you can find it here: https://archive.org/details/PrestonBlairCartoonAnimation)

and traced over some screenshots just to see how they'd come out as gifs...

so here's my inchworm, taking the long way 'round - because like me, he's VERY easily distracted and will spend literally days doing 17 other things rather than getting straight to the point/destination/etc (much like what i'm doing right here with my waffling...)

here's a totally weird one, i tried the page which shows how mouths move (from the above-mentioned book) and made this while i waited to pick kids up from school, it's saying "all of the boys caught fish"
