"Bambi" (1942) [9 of 9] - Sketch Book

OK. I'm going to start posting our collection of Bambi material. Hope you enjoy it.

If you are interested in the Disney's artistic transformation to bring the study of art to cartooning, then this is an excellent book. A number of excellent examples of the anatomical drawings of deer as the animators sought to create more realistic movement and physicality. By the way, Disney produced a number of sketch books for the major releases. We don't have all of them, but a majority of them. We were fortunate enough to pick up at least two copies of each: one for reference and one we left sealed in the original plastic for re-sale at a later date. I just re-read the last sentence and realized how "hard core" we had become!

  1. My great uncle was an artist and did over 2000 works for Disney, but I am having a heck of a time finding any of them-Do you know of anything by August "Curley" Lenox? Sindi

    1. I have a painting by Lenox of two Arabian horses (one white and one black) that reminds me of the flying horses in Fantasia. Do you happen to know anything about this painting?

  2. Where Can I found it?
