Gurney Journey
James Gurney's (the creator and illustrator of the Dinotopia series of books) blog. Has a tremendous amount of information about academic painting, art history, illustration, and general art principles of all stripes. Probably the single best blog on art that I've come across.

Mostly covers animation and Disney related topics, and has a great look at the raw pencil animation/sketchwork of some of the all-time greats of animation. If you have any interest in Disney, animation, or cartooning in general, it's worth checking out.
