the mock prince
interesting to note that the birds carrying the cape are just sketched in, does this imply that they were animated by a different person, or was there no change from previous drawing? Also on the same paper in the left corner is the following little sketch of a girl, not at all the style of Sleeping Beauty more like a Freddie Moore drawing from 'All the cats join in' - although Moore had died in a car crash years before
