Victor Navone

I received a sketch of Nemo and Squirt from Disney animator Victor Navone back in November. I figured I would post it today as it's my last response of 2009! Victor has worked on many notable Disney films such as Finding Nemo, Cars, Monsters Inc. and the Incredibles. I would have posted this earlier but I also had Victor sketch Lighting McQueen from Cars for my dad. Since I recieved it so close to the holidays I decided to give the sketch to my dad as a suprise Christmas present! Now I need to work on sending some more requests out. It seems I never have much time to send them out anymore. I'll try my best though and hope 2010 will continue to bring more awesome successes!

Flashback: Roy E. Disney

I haven't really had the time to send out any autograph requests lately so hence really haven't been receiving any. It's been about a month since I posted anything new on my blog and last night my dad was telling me that Roy E. Disney passed away. I wrote to him way back in 2001 when I first began sending out a bunch of autograph requests. I received this signed color photo of him and thought it would be nice to post this week in memory of him. The New York Times published a great overview today about his life and many accomplishments with Walt Disney Co.
