"101 Dalmatians" (1961; 1996) - "Hopeful Pups" Sericel

Not everything needs to be "an original." When we run across a Limited Edition or Sericel that works with some of the other items in the collection, it will end up on our walls! Here in Colorado (as with other Western & Northern states) the low humidity can cause the paint on the cels to curl and flake off. In our case, the cels are all in the basement where we run humidifiers to keep the humidity at a fairly constant level. Naturally, this means that on the other floors we are limited to pencil sketches, model sheets and backgrounds. By purchasing a few sericels (which do not have some of the same humidity related problems), you can add some color to the walls.

These two images are framed together and represent how a pencil sketch is rendered for the actual movie. While I wished they would have picked frames that had a more similar "look," it does help those unfamiliar with the animation process see the progression from sketch to final product.
