An Adventure in Art

Walt Disney begins with quotes from Robert Henri's The Art of Spirit and then explains the importance of an artist's individual style, but also how each member of the team must set aside his personal vision to match the style of the studio production.

The video also shows the processes and products of four Disney artists painting from the same live oak tree. (Marc Davis, Eyvind Earle, Walter Peregoy, and Joshua Meador)




UPDATED: Annie Leibovitz Disney Dream Portrait series

As you may know, I am a fan of both Disney and photographer, Annie Leibovitz. I did a previous post on her series of the Wizard of Oz for Vogue. I have also mentioned her Disney Dream series and since they just released 3 more images in the series, I thought I would do a post where the whole collection is available.
