This is not my artwork, but it’s a very important piece of artwork if you love Disney and especially Disney Afternoon.
This is the original pitch painting created by my good friend Tad Stones for ‘Kit Colby and the Rescue Rangers’, a new concept he took to Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg in the early development days of what became Disney Afternoon.
According to Tad, within 2 minutes Eisner said ‘take out that Kit guy, put the two chipmunks in instead’ and the rest is history.
As with any new show, it developed and evolved. Gadget got a little prettier, Monterey Jack got Kit’s dress sense and the Chinese cricket Chirp Sing thankfully didn’t survive long enough to age awkwardly into the PC era ;)
Camille the Chameleon was the idea of fellow Ducktales writer Jymn Magon.
This is an awesome painting and part of Disney television history and I thank Tad for his permission to upload it and share its story with y’all :)

My early visual development for Frozen. In this version the Snow Queen (a diva) was frozen when we met her. This is research for what that would have looked like.

Early visual development of Elsa for Frozen. I was inspired by the late Amy Winehouse’s pathos. I imagined Elsa with a deep, soulful voice and dramatic mood swings.

Views of EPCOT’s Wonders of Life pavilion, then and now. The team at Imagineering Disney went back to recreate the shots from vintage photos and postcards. The “NOW” is from 2010. The pavilion has been closed for years, only opening for Food and Wine and other special events. Via Imagineering Disney. More vintage Disney.
