How to Fake Great Animation

Why this Flash animation book?

Professional instructor and owner of  CartoonSmart.com, Justin Dike teaches a decade’s worth of tips and tricks for Adobe Flash animation using high resolution images, interactive galleries, video examples, and (duh) full color pages throughout! In recent years, Cartoon Smart has ventured into iOS programming and App development, but Justin founded the site to teach people to be “smart” with “cartoons”. Hence, the name. So he’s taking a break from the heady logic of game-making to return to CartoonSmart’s roots with a new animation course in a brand new format.
