Featured Cel



Cardcaptor Sakura (Ep. 1): The Windy Card fluttering above The Fly Card (Purchased 8/8/02; the first cel added after my gallery opened).

Featured Sketch



Magic Knight Rayearth (Ep. 49): Umi and Fuu react to Alcyone's Plight (Rough by Atsuko Ishida, added 5/28/04; one of the first sketches that I ever collected).
_______________________________________

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 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.

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.
______________________________________________

In honor of my gallery's twentieth anniversary, the banner is from the very first cel uploaded to my Rubberslug gallery twenty years ago, on August 3 2002. It is from Ep, 1 of Cardcaptor Sakura: The Opening Dream Sequence. It's also chronologically the first cel that I own from this series, as it appears just before the title card of this portentous first episode. The background is just a snapshot of local fireworks that I saved for this cel-ebration.
