Im looking to get into animation, im not like a flash fan so im thinking about doing it all by hand and just using my camera as a scanner to capture what I draw

anyway im looking for some good sites or books on getting started, im looking to nail a style similar to Don Hertzfeldt's, any help would be greatly appreciated

I do a lot of digital art and mixed media traditional, no animating. Ive always wanted to get a job with disney or pixar in character design though.

Actually, I do. Cartooning pretty much, you'll be able to tell why I would like to work with disney.
