Milt Kahl Day

When I was working at Disney, I had this sheet (among others) over my desk for inspiration.  It is just an amazing use of stretch and squash by Milt on the great dialogue piece.  The character, Edgar says "my hat, my umbrella!"   I really love the shapes that Milt drew and the way he did the M sound shape of the mouth by squashing the face.  When he opens the mouth for MY you see no teeth and tongue at all.  You see the tongue only when he says umbrella.  Genius!

  3. Hey Sandro!

    This are amazing drawings. I love the way you capture thi Milt thing in your animation. It´s to bad that for todays standards, many people would consider this "to exagarated". I love this style, and all the stuff the oldtimers did!
