Even being sick was charming back then.

In 1951, the Disney Studios produced a ten minute cartoon entitled How to Catch a Cold. It ran on television as a commercial for Disposable Kleenex Tissues and was shown in health classes in schools.  Some of the CGI work that is being done today is amazing, but I find animation like this (especially from this era) so charming and full of personality that it's pure magic.

I've been mighty sick myself in 2011 so far, so I haven't done to much sketchin'.

I did do this warm up sketch the other day.  I was looking for photo reference websites and stumbled across a PAY one, they had some free samples so I grabbed one and did a quick gesture sketch.
