KEN ANDERSON: A WELL-ROUND DISNEY LEGEND
This man did EVERYTHING. Generally animators focused in one or two categories which to explore in animation. Not Ken Anderson. He studied architecture, and secured at position at Disney where ha contributed throughout his career as an art director, screenwriter, animator, production designer, short-story author and imagineer.
These are all concept art he did for various Disney films, but he participated in so much more, and those films wouldn’t have been what they were without him. Andreas Deja describes his work as art that ”shows how to place characters in an environment in a way that presents mood combined with character development”.
He received the Disney Legend award as for animation and imagineering in 1991, an honour that recognizes people who made outstanding contribution to the Walt Disney Company.

As if the fact that the blog is approaching 12 000 followers is not reason enough to be ecstatic, I’m supercalifragilsticexpialidociously excited to announce that I’m going to WDW this november to celebrate my birthday!!!
And that’s not the best part, two very close friends who used to go with me to Disneyland Paris when I was living there almost two years ago are meeting me there for a magical birthday vacation.
I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE IT! I haven’t been to WDW since I welcomed the New Year in 2009 (receiving 2010). Anyone else wanna meet me there to celebrate together?
Went to the store and just couldn’t resist! I had to get him. #monstersuniversity #disney #disneymerchandise #pixar #JamesSullivan
you mean the Disney tv series I suppose! Well not on tumblr, but you can check out this video with Greg Weisman director and co-creator of the series with the original pitch to sell the program to Disney. There’s a lot of concept art and layouts. Hope it helps :)
This is the scene where Hercules gently lowers Meg to the ground after she sacrificed to save him from the giant cyclops titan. Hercules was animated by Disney animator Andreas Deja, who was in for something different after animating 3 iconic villains in a row (Gaston, Jafar and Scar), and asked if he could take the assingment of Adult Hercules. Animator Ken Duncan, who was Meg’s supervising animator, helped him to keep her drawing on model.
