Completely Adorable

Preston Blair was an animator for Disney, MGM, and Universal. He was born October 24, 1908 and died April 19, 1995 at the age of 86. Looking at his animation work makes me really happy. Such as this:
Look at that goddamn suave alligator from Fantasia.
Blair was on the animation team for Fantasia, Bambi, Pinocchio, The Flinstones, Tom and Jerry, and various cartoons from all 3 studios.
 The owl from Bambi! I love the sketch of him preening.
"Heavy Pugnacious" may be the best character descriptor I've read in awhile.

 If you're interested, there's more sketches behind the 'Read more' cut.

I found my information at IMDB, Wikipedia and the art here.
