___________________________________________

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 tour currently provides an overview of the interesting 2006 J.C.Staff production Asatte no Houkou, in honor of a thorough refurbishing of this part of my gallery with lots of new information about the animators and staff involved.

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 is based on a shuusei rough (by senior animation director Shinya Hasegawa) from Asatte no Houkou, showing the grown Karada looking up in melancholy surprise. It honors the current "Quirky Tour" that reviews this underappreciated little gem and adds new information on the animators involved. The background is a detail from a snapshot of some of the strange blossoms caused by the icy spring we are having this year.
