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.

Or check out the "Quirky Gallery Tour," which calls out items in my collection for special attention according to a frequently changing theme. The current tour is my annual review of the previous year, looking over the year's additions and honoring the gallery that was most improved in 2014

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 gray-themed banner features a detail from a Tree of Palme background showing some exotic plants enduring the last bleak days of winter on an inside shelf. The misty background (with a hint of just-spring green) is a detail from another background used in Princess Tutu.

Wonderful Adventures of Nils: Nils and Carrot riding on Marten (A139).
