Disney Magazine Illustrators

Kevin Kidney has posted a virtual gallery of rare images of original vintage publication art for Walt Disney’s Magazine, featuring art by animation folks Art Riley, Paul Hartley, Herb Ryman, Al Dempster, and others. The work is rarely ever seen – except by those who happen to own old copies of the magazine. The originals were sold off to the public in auction by Disney several years ago without much fanfare, but the imagery is very inspiring. Read more about this on Kevin’s blog.

    Interesting display, sans credits. Thanks. Some of the latter ones are pixelated to unrecognition, though.
