Well, as it's a three day weekend all those who can be are far, far away from the keyboards and monitors.
But just as a preview for those of you who happen to surf by:
Fred Moore confronted by his pals Riley Thompson and John Sibley at Disney's; I'm not sure which one drew this, but I don't think it was Fred. By the way, it's telling that for all the latter-day headshaking--understandably--re: Moore's drinking--this is obviously the way it was viewed at the time by his friends; a very different era. The title is suggesting that Sibley and Thompson will wait for Fred to get over his hangover-before they commence to have one together!
To leaven the return to the desks next week, I'll be posting some of the Fred Moore collection of James Walker. Among the goodies: studies for "All The Cats Join In", "Fantasia", what look like some helpful demonstrations of animation principles likely done for another artist, early 50's things he tossed in his trash that were rescued by a fellow artist, a fantastic, super-rough study for one of his more elaborate presentation girl setups, rough poses of Jose Carioca and the Little Gauchito, animation roughs of Pluto from "Pluto's Judgement Day", and more.
For anyone interested in loose and beautiful drawing, it's obviously going to be a swell treat. Also, there are some rare self-caricatures of Fred(up til having the chance to look over James' collection(or a portion of it, I'd seen only one or two that he'd drawn of himself, including the half-finished one that's on view in "The Illusion of Life").
So enjoy your holiday, and see you on Tuesday.
