More Milt Jungle Book

These drawings didn't make it into the Jungle Book exhibition.  We had so much great material, we could not include all of it. Most of these Milt Kahl "outtakes" are sketches made for other animators.

Colonel Hathi for John Lounsbery, King Louie and Baloo for Frank Thomas and the Girl for Ollie Johnston. 

As Milt proclaimed in an interview:"I was the Disney style!"

Here is a link to a post full of Milt Kahl Jungle Book drawings, from over 10 years ago:

Lucky Emil

Milt Kahl sent this magnificent drawing of Bagheera to one lucky person called Emil. Probably in 1965. In studying the sketch I think this might be an outtake from an actual scene. Remember when Bagheera gives Baloo a hard time, who just announced that he is going to take care of Mowgli and teach him all he knows? This pose is from that section of the film. Milt added the branch and a personal note, folded the drawing, and off to lucky Emil...

Advance Copy

I just received an advance copy of the catalogue/book about the Jungle Book exhibition at the Walt Disney Family Museum. 192 pages. It couldn't have turned out better. I am very thrilled with the printing quality and page layouts.

What can I say...I highly recommend it!!
