Welcome to the Production Art Page

This section is the result of hours of net searches and the generosity of others. All the 'altered' production sketches came from numerous copies I had of the Turner Feature's in-house newsletter - The Kitty Letter'. The model sheets are donations from several individuals, bless em all. Other sources include Ebay and animation art galleries. And then there were a few people who were just nice enough to share scans and photos of the art treasures they own.
Has this fandom got great people, or what?  :)

  Many years ago  there was an awesome site called Sue's Rock Animation Archives. Fed by the professional art community, it provided an extensive collection of animation model sheet and production art. Sadly, it disappeared from the net as other 'wannabe' archives lifted images without crediting Sue's Rock the original source and even editing out the watermarks in some instances. These images are sketch and model sheet roughs from the Cats Don't Dance section at Sue's Rock. Some of them are repeats of images we already have in the production art sections above, I have included them since they are of better quality.
Many thanks to Sue & Rob for sharing these so long ago. :)
