Lavalle has been making animated online cartoons since 2001 for his website flashcartoons.org. In 2009 Lavalle started learning animation training from Don Bluth. In 2011 he started the Traditional Animation website after seeing most animation sites were about all types of animation, not any specific to classical hand drawn animation. Lavalle also is the host of the online series, “The Traditional Animation Show”. Lavalle is currently the Vice President for Don Bluth Studios. Lavalle is also the administrator of Don Bluth University and lead the Dragon’s Lair: The Movie Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign. He later then followed the right connections to get Netflix to produce the Live-Action film.
My sites include: traditionalanimation.com, flashcartoons.org, kinjokids.com, and flashzombies. Please enjoy my blog with updates, previews, character designs, pencil tests and whatever else I post up :D

Only now, am I understanding what it takes to become an animator. Before I animated so stiff, now I know I should of been studying traditional animation from the past.
I have been practicing on my animation desk and learning from Don Bluth since 2009. It has been a great experience!
