Featured Cel:

A Tree of Palme: The Healing of Koram (added 06/13/2008). I bid on the "Messy Midden," expecting that it would have one of the cels from this much-desired cut. Little did I know that I was buying the entire cut, from A1 to A32 END (featured here), plus nine eye layers and 52 layers of her hair blowing in the wind.

Featured Sketch:

A Tree of Palme: Inside the Canopy of a Kooloop Tree (Added 06/19/2008). This is the single largest piece of animation art that I own, 26 3/4 by 18 inches and slightly larger than the resulting cel.

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.

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 one of my monumental acquisitions, the "Messy Midden" of artwork from Nakamura's 2001 film A Tree of Palme, all the key images on this site -- the banner, background, featured cel, and featured sketch -- are items purchased together ten years ago in this huge, miscellaneous lot. The banner adapts a master set-up of Shatta confronting his psychopathic mother's spirit in the Bloody Chamber of Tamas, the Underworld. The background is a detail from a poster-sized watercolor background showing the Harbor of Teroi, scene of Palme and Popo's meeting.

1/20/2018The new year begins on a dubious note with a forged CCS cel of Yue and Touya from a key scene in Ep. 69.. I've placed this in the "One or Two of a Kind" gallery alongside my fanart rather with my authentic CCS production art. But collectors may find the accompanying note useful in negotiating what is becoming a more risky anime art market. (Relax! There is some real CCS art on its way!)
