This has been a pet project of mine that has sat on the back burner for years, decades actually. The whole gist of it is this… my father has been collecting #Disney
art for over 60 years and has amassed a portfolio that could literally (and I’m using that word correctly) fill a mid-sized museum. He purchased his first original production cels at the Art Corner in #Tomorrowland
during his trip to #Disneyland
in 1955, and over the course of his lifetime has acquired over 900 pieces of art, from original production drawings, backgrounds, model sheets, storyboards, and comic art. I’ve been told, although hard to verify, that it’s one of the largest private collections in existence.
I’m hoping to start documenting the pieces soon, and when I do I’ll be sure to share. "Original Production Drawing from Steamboat Willie. (Walt Disney Studios, 1928) Drawing by Ub Iwerks"
