Sir Ector Color Model Cel


A beautiful color model cel currently being offered by Heritage Auctions. Milt Kahl drew this pose of Sir Ector from the 1963 film The Sword in the Stone. What a beautiful spontaneous  sketch. 

In the film Richard Reitherman provided the voice of Wart, England's future king. His father Woolie Reitherman of course directed the movie. Richard stopped by my house last Sunday with one of his daughters Daniella. We watched the Woolie episode from The Disney Family Album series. Followed by a screening of MUSHKA. 

I am happy to say that both of them got teary eyed at the film's ending. Because that's the ultimate reaction to MUSHKA.

Josef Pallenberg

Josef Pallenberg was a German animal sculptor. I only discovered his beautiful work recently while browsing the internet. Great poses, strong knowledge of anatomy as well as motion. 

Pallenberg kept a "tame" lioness and a wolf at his home. He enjoyed taking them on a walk occasionally as he watched people freaking out.

I tried to get this book, pictured above, but it is out of print. Hopefully it will pop up on Ebay one of these days.

Here is the link to his Wikipedia page:
