Featured Cel:



Magic Knight Rayearth (Ep. 49): Alcyone wrapped in Debonaire's Curse (uploaded 7/23/05). This was the first MKR cel that I purchased (many more followed.)

Featured Sketch:



Magic Knight Rayearth (Ep. 37): Hikaru casts Fire Arrow, rough sketch, likely by Megumi Kadonosono (Won 07/26/05).
___________________________________________

Welcome to my collection of animation art! As you'll see, I take a "museum" approach, annotating the items I collect, putting them in context whenever possible, and providing background information on the series and the creators.

This site is an opportunity to learn more about the artistic process behind animation. So in addition to beautiful cels, you'll see some of the production materials--sketches, backgrounds, settei, storyboards, "test" cels--that let us look behind the scenes at how animation studios produced these series.

If you're not sure where to start, begin with one of the "Quick Gallery Tours." Now divided into three categories -- Golden Age, Classic Cel-Based, and Contemporary CGI-Based -- they give a picture of the whole collection at a glance, and then review each series I collect, one page per series, with a lot of links to the individual galleries as you go.

Another good place to start is the "Quirky Gallery Tour," which calls out items in my collection for special attention according to a frequently changing theme. The current tour is a survey of a recent "messy midden" purchase of production sketches from Tenshi ni Narumon that provides many seldom-scene glimpses of what went on behind the scenes of cel-based animation.

And if you're a real lover of animation art, then go to "Private Area" and type in the super-secret password "seemorestuff" to gain access to lots of extras that I've hidden to keep the gallery easy to explore.
______________________________________________

The current banner continues the 10-year celebration of my first MKR cel with an image from Ep. 2 of the Rayearth OVA showing Umi uniting with her mashin Selece. The background is a detail from a snapshot of Assawoman Bay on a nice breezy day for sailing.
