Didier Ghez is back with another beautiful volume of They Drew As They Pleased. As he revealed in our last interview, this volume focuses on the 1940’s and Disney’s musical years. Featured artists include Kay Nielsen, Sylvia Holland, Retta Scott, and David Hall. These books will inspire in equal measure, both the Disney history buff and the animation enthusiast that merely buys these books for the art. Either way, there’s no shortage of inspiration within. To celebrate the release, Chronicle Books is giving away a copy to one lucky On Animation reader. All you have to do to be eligible is follow us Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or Pinterest and share this post. A winner will be chosen Friday, September 9th. Good luck!
Update: Didier was on Marketplace talking about this period in Disney history and the release of his new book. Continue reading below for a sneak peek at the variety of art work in this volume.
Quite an inspiring story!
Mike’s a great animator (yes, Mike, you are, deal with it) and instructor. His feedback will cut right to the core of your shot. I would have loved to have an animation teacher like this when I was in school. Highly recommended!
