Van Eaton Galleries planning Cartoon Auction

Prepare to geek-out. Mike Van Eaton is co-producing a major animation art auction in Los Angeles on Saturday May 14th. The auction is a joint venture between Van Eaton Galleries and Profiles In History and will contain rare animation related items, including production art, Disneyana, Movie Posters, Hostorical Documents, etc. Mike says:

“I honestly dont think there has been a major LIVE animation art auction in at least 15 years. It will be held here in Los Angeles, with live bidding as well as bidding on the internet, etc. Let your readers know that we are still accepting consignments, at least till the end of the week, and then we will start to build the catalog.”

So, if you have anything incredible you want to auction off, send a note and a jpeg to In the meantime, Mike is sending me sneak-peeks of art and other things already accepted for the auction – and has allowed me to share them on the Brew. First up, a few of the incredible vintage posters from Disney (above) and Ub Iwerks, Mutt & Jeff, Scrappy and Dinky Doodle. View the gallery after the jump.

More to come…
