Animation: Canemaker on Tytla

Bill Tytla

John Canemaker lent us a copy of an article he wrote for an exhibit of artwork by Bill Tytla. Tytla was a giant among animators, known for his solid, dimensional drawings and convincing depiction of weight and mass.

Here is the complete article…

Illustration: Uncle Remus Stories 1949

Song of the South Uncle Remus Stories

On Saturday Animation Resources volunteer, Eric Graf brought by another treasure for us to digitize… a 1949 edition of the Disney Giant Golden Book, "Uncle Remus Stories". It features a spectacular cover by Mary Blair and many beautiful interior illustrations by Al Dempster and Bill Justice.

This book is interesting, not just for its relationship to the rarely seen Disney film, Song of the South, but for the material that doesn’t appear in the film. Along with the familiar stories about the Tar Baby and Brer Rabbit’s Laffin’ Place, the book illustrates a dozen other stories like "De Great Rabbit Terrapin Race", "Brer Fox and de Stolen Goobers" and "Why de Cricket Fambly Lives in Chimbleys".
