Images back!

A complete change in hosting server infrastructure had put all my images in limbo. They're back! Now under my own control...
[But the server might be slow to reply, so if you get a time-out, please try again!]

There was a question whether I have drafts from the time of the Disney Renaissance. The answer is, I have a few sequences here and there, but no complete films. From at least Oliver and Co., the drafts were made on some kind of computer, which makes them look less attractive in my opinion. However, I would love to be able to give the newer animators their due credits.

I've always wondered what happened to the drafts for Bambi. Did Disney lose that one?

Would Love to see more Drafts!!! Your blog is the only source in the entire internet database
that provides a wealth of information about the animators and their assignments. The feautures after the Fox and the Hound are very important. Glen keane , Andreas Deja, Mark Henn and other animators, did an amazing job. We can't wait to see new drafts from the golden era of animation and from the rennaisance period!!!
I also wanted to ask about other studios, like Don Bluth's. Did they have the same assignment system as Disney with the animation drafts?

Kicking myself now that I never thought to make copies while I worked at Disney Feature Animation (we had access to all the drafts , past productions up to current productions, in the studio library). I expect that officially we were not allowed to make photocopies , but in retrospect I should have made copies (at the time I was blissfully living under the delusion that I would work at Disney Animation until I retired as an old man , little suspecting that I and most of my colleagues would soon be out on the street . "But, but, but... we are "family" , you said so !" wailed the artists ... "We don't know you people" replied the management.)

Say, Mr. Perk, would it be possible to acquire drafts on both Bedknobs & Broomsticks and Pete's Dragon?
