I’ve had multiple requests this week to make a print out of these works. So for those who are interested, here you go – http://society6.com/davemott/Caffeinated-Owls_Print
There’s something about Owls. The Great Grey Owl is also called the Great Gray Ghost, Phantom of the north, Cinereous Owl, Spectral Owl, Lapland Owl, Spruce Owl, Bearded Owl and Sooty Owl. All very cool names for a beautiful raptor.
Inspired by Ward Kimball & C. August Nichols – Toot Whistle Plunk and Bloom (1953)
And in light of the Oscars being tonight, This film won Best Animated Short Film in 1953.
Ward Kimball was asked to rework the film to be the first Cinemascope cartoon for Disney.
