Really rough Moores

Click them!

I have no way of knowing, but I'd bet that these two sheets were done at another animator's desk, demonstrating a principle or two. Of course, the young animator(and judging from the look of the drawings, likely c.late 1930s-early 40s, everybody was young then--except Grim Natwick)stowed them away and kept them, never throwing them away. I've seen a lot of Fred Moore's beautiful watercolor and ink gift drawings and his even more lovely animation, but looking at these originals, humble as they are, I was really thrilled. You can just see people think in drawings like these.
More to come.
