Old Style

This is not from me. I bought this wonderfully watercoloured piece in an antiquarian bookshop in Milano, last week. I'm not sure if this drawing is just an old children's book illustration or maybe something related to animation. Unfortunately, the artist left no signature or date on it. Anyway, I really like its early animation style and warm colouring.


  1. It does remind me of the good ol' hand drawn animation, I miss it :(

    I can't wait for The Princess and the Frog!

  2. thank you for your words...it's always nice to hear, especially when they come from someone as EXTREMELY TALENTED as yourself. Your work is inspirational

  3. Yeah man, great great find. I'd love to own this. Great blog too, lovely stuff all around, very inspiring.

  4. Nothing like ink on paper. The older artists were realy incredible.

  5. Reminds me of Pinocchio.
    Dude, you're a drawing mad man...Love yer stuff...don't know why I've never dropped you a comment until now.
    Keep up the great inspiring work man!

  6. Derek, I'll let you hold it for a minute :)

    Dave, thanks! And indeed, I'm looking forward to seeing it, too...

    Jason, you're truly a great artist! I'm a big fan of your work! Thanks for stopping by.

    Crylic, Felipe, Rawls!! Thanks a bunch!
