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.

  2. Ed, these are really a treasure. I miss so many of the Disney vets we had the honor of working with so your blog brings another wonderful and talented personality brought back for us all to share. I can look for sketches Vance did for me at the studio and those little books he used to pass out at Christmas if that will help your collection. In the meantime, keep up the great blogging!
