Are you a student from a multimedia arts course school, a fresh graduate, or an aspiring neophyte who wants to enter the world of arts and animation? Check out these quotes from top artists and animators for inspiration.

1. Walter Elias “Walt” Disney

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

2. Hayao Miyazaki

“My process is thinking, thinking and thinking – thinking about my stories for a long time.”

3. Matthew Abram “Matt” Groening

“Living creatively is really important to maintain throughout your life. And living creatively doesn’t mean only artistic creativity, although that’s part of it. It means being yourself, not just complying with the wishes of other people.”

4. Charles Martin “Chuck” Jones

“The whole essence of good drawing—and of good thinking, perhaps—is to work a subject down to the simplest form possible and still have it believable for what it is meant to be.”

5. Joseph Roland “Joe” Barbera

“Making cartoons means very hard work at every step of the way, but creating a successful cartoon character is the hardest work of all.”

6. John Alan Lasseter

“Every movie has three things you have to do – you have to have a compelling story that keeps people on the edge of their seats; you have to populate that story with memorable and appealing characters; and you have to put that story and those characters in a believable world. Those three things are so vitally important.”

7. Akira Toriyama

“The method of producing comics in Japan is very hectic, but it’s also rewarding because it’s possible to do both the story and art all by yourself. In this way, it’s possibly to bring out one’s individuality. If this idea appeals to you, I call on you to try drawing your own manga.”

8. Zenas Winsor McCay

“The principle [sic] factor in my success has been an absolute desire to draw constantly. I never decided to be an artist. Simply, I couldn’t stop myself from drawing. I drew for my own pleasure. I never wanted to know whether or not someone liked my drawings. I have never kept one of my drawings. I drew on walls, the school blackboard, odd bits of paper, the walls of barns. Today I’m still as fond of drawings as when I was a kid – and that was a long time ago – but, surprising as it may seem, I never thought about the money I would receive for my drawings. I simply drew them.”
