Jagged Lines of Imagination Art Academy is proud to host the premiere of never-before seen paintings & illustrations from the private collection of Disney Legend Mel Shaw!
Animator and story man Mel Shaw has been called one of Disney's "elder statesmen" of animation. Walt Disney personally recruited Mel to join his team. In 1937, Mel arrived at Disney, contributing to "Fantasia", "Bambi", and "The Wind in the Willows," which later became a segment in "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad". In 1974, Walt Disney Studios called Mel to help in the outgoing transition between retiring animators and the next generation. Mel offered skill and knowledge to such Disney motion pictures as "The Rescuers", "The Fox and the Hound", "The Great Mouse Detective", "Beauty and the Beast", "The Lion King" (1994), and more.
