My name is Steve Lee and I live in England. My family live in Florida which is a great place for
holidays and Walt Disney World. I work in childrens theatre (or "theater" if you are Stateside)
and have had the pleasure of writing two Disney television scripts for European audiences.
I have been collecting Disney drawings for about seventeen years. I have a Victorian pencil drawing
of two little girls which my Grandmother bought as it reminded her of my mother
and her sister, and pencil drawings have thereafter always appealed to me.
Check out my business site some time!

I have always been a fan of Disney animation and found that the Disney drawings
represent more of the work of an original artist than the "cel" which always
seemed a very manufactured product - trace: ink: paint:
whereas there was a vitality in the original pencils which got smoothed
out during the production process.
As finances are not unlimited I had to draw the line (!) :-)
somewhere when it came to establishing a collection,
so decided to concentrate on the features that were produced during Walt Disney's
lifetime. And, yes, I know two of my 'Fun & Fancy Free' are forgeries, and one of my
'Saludos Amigos' cannot be identified - I never said the collection was complete!
