"Country Cousin" (1936) [Series] - Ingeborg Willy Scrapbook Pencils

Here are some items from the pages of Ingeborg Willy's Scrapbook (1936-1937). Willy was hired to work in the Pen and Ink Department at an amazing time in the Studio's history. While the Studio was small enough for everyone to know one another, it was struggling with growth issues. Willy's scrapbook includes photographs she took of fellow workers and she also collected scraps of pencil art and other items used in the animation process. Included were a few items from "Country Cousin," which won the Oscar for Best Animated Short in 1936.

While these are items trimmed from standard sheets, they all represent unique character poses. While some may argue the value is reduced because they are trimmed, each sheet in the scrapbook presents a special "snap shot" into the life of the Studio and the people that worked for Disney at the time -- which has a special value all its own.
