Anyone who worked at Disney Feature Animation over the past forty years knew who Vance Gerry was. Very few actually got to see his work before it was shipped off to the archives.

Fortunately, the geek in me started making copies of his work and instead of sitting in a folder in my personal archive I want to share these drawings with as many people as possible. If you look long enough at these drawings and paintings you will be able to see the kind, funny, humble and generous man that was Vance Gerry.

  1. Hey Ed!
    I never heard of Vance Gerry until I heard your talk at CTN. I did a google search and found this blog you created. Thank you for putting all this work on the internet. It is full of great inspiration.

Daraus ergibt sich auch gleich die Bedeutung, welche dahin geht, dass früher Clipart Illustrational warren, animationen welche man aus lizenzfreien Weaken odder speziellen Büchern ausgeschnitten hat und dadurch eigene Kreationen entwickelt hat.
