Ruel is one of the most talented artists I have ever met, and I consider myself lucky to of had the privilege of his tutelage. He has spent the past couple of years working on Star Wars (the video games and movie I believe) for Disney Interactive.
Anyways, seeing as how I am an Animator with a Bachelor's of Science in Media Arts & Animation, and being that Van Eaton Galleries is one of the world's premier Animation Art Dealers, I couldn't help but to browse their catalogs for nostalgic purposes.
While I was on vacation at the time and wasn't actually planning on buying any artwork, once I was there flipping through original works by Chuck Jones, Disney's Nine Old Men, Hanna Barbera, etc. etc, I just could not leave the gallery without my very own piece of Animation History for my private art collection.
That being said, I ended up purchasing two original Yogi Bear keyframes/ poses, as well as this Silly Symphony's Little Hiawatha compilation sheet of Action Sketches/ key poses.
Feel free to comment and share your thoughts about Little Hiawatha. I hope you enjoy this animation as much as I do :) Also, If you are ever in Los Angeles, I highly recommend visiting the gallery. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and there are always new galleries of contemporary artwork as well. This sheet of Action Sketches is something I truly treasure and brings a smile to my face every time I see it hanging on my walls.
