Disney

Have I mentioned that Disney is my favorite?  I grew up on Disney movies and trips to Disneyland.  I was a fairly accomplished artist as a kid, and graduated with the hopes of becoming a Disney animator.  I’m not a Disney animator; but I still deeply appreciate the detail to storytelling behind every Disney movie, TV show, and park!  I believe Walt Disney was a visionary and I am not ashamed to say I cried when reading his autobiography.  I believe the world is a happier and more magical place because of Walt Disney and I celebrate that here!
