Pure joy! This is what I felt when I got this email from Pete Merolo yesterday evening. I could not wait to share it with you. I live to see this kind of unseen before artwork.
[You asked to see Concept artwork -- how about this piece created for the Fantasia Concert Feature, dated September 14, 1938, of the 'Bug Orchestra'.

It's ink and watercolor with boxed outlines for camera shots and 31'' long.

The watercolor shows no signs of fading and is as bright and beautiful as the day it was painted.]
You can learn more about the planned Insect Ballet sequence from Fantasia by checking Charles Solomon's book The Disney That Never Was.
