Disney Fan

Since I can remember I have been a huge fan of Walt Disney Animation especially the feature films.
My favourite film is "Pinocchio" I'm still amazed at the artistry and craftmanship that went into creating that film and to think it was made in 1940. Another favourite is "The Jungle Book" a simple story with great character animation. Of the second golden age of Disney animation I love "The Little Mermaid", "Beauty and the Beast", and most recently "The Princess and the Frog" Disney's return to hand drawn animation.... and long may it continue!
I have been lucky enough to meet three of Walt Disney's original "Nine Old Men" Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnston, and Marc Davis at two different Animation art exhibitions at an Animation Gallery in London, England.
Here is a photo of myself with Frank Thomas.
