These are some Illustrations, 
I've done for a children's Newspaper called  ' YOUNG BUZZ '

Well, I think Illustration is most important subject for animation. Figure drawing, Perspective, Color schemes, Frame composition, Camera angles, and a lot other things you can learn through studying Illustrations. Luckily Young Buzz was a Children's Newspaper, and It required a Cartoon style illustrations so, that's how it helped me a lot to do an Animation study while working.
