I like the link with the great animation production drawings, but what are those people at ARA playing at by getting Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston to sign Marc Davis's drawngs of Maleficent ? !!

 -


If people are that hard up to own a signature from one of the Nine Old Men , then why not just sell Frank and Ollie original autographs on copies of their own drawings ?

This practice does nothing to add to the value of production drawings that they didn't work on and I can just imagine the headaches and misinformation this sort of thing is going to do 500 years from now for animation art historians . Can you imagine if after Leonardo daVinci died they got some peer of his to go around signing Leonardo's unsigned drawings ? Ack.

From the desk of Tom Sito. Enjoy the Christmas History:


TOM SITO'S CHRISTMAS TRIVIA-2003


As you sit back in your chair this Christmas –Christ’s Mass ( the
biggest holiday of the Ancient Roman World called Saturnalia and the birth of
the Persian Sun God Mithras was named the birth festival of Jesus by Pope Leo
the Great in 885 A.D. December 25th was also the Feast of Sol Invictus, the
Invincible Sun, a cult popular to Romans like Constantine, the first Christian
emperor. Modern estimates based on the census records of Augustus and astronomy
calculate Jesus' actual birth may have occurred in July although Christians
had started to use the Saturnalia as the birthday feast as early as the 300's
A.D. ) by your yule log (German Norse custom, the Yule Festival lasting twelve
days), wrapping your presents in pretty paper ( Roman Saturnalia custom) with
your house all decorated with lights ( Roman New Year custom) under your
mistletoe (Druid custom), drinking from your Wassel Bowl (Anglo-German hot beer
with toast floating in which is why we "toast" with the words "was-heil"-hail to
you. Egg Nog was a drink of Elizabethan sailors which means 'Eggs with Grog".)

You're admiring your Christmas Tree ( besides Druid tree worship, the 24th
of December was the feast day of Saints Adam & Eve when Medieval Churches act
out the Genesis story and set up a tree representing the "tree of life" with
glass balls representing the fruit. Some attribute the idea to Martin Luther and
others to a legend about devils trying to undermine the Tree of Life and they
succeed at end of the year so decorating a tree helps the Tree of Life grow
back. They began to appear in private homes in the mid-1500s. The Christmas
Tree custom was taken from Germany to England by Prince Albert the husband of
Queen Victoria and to America by Hessian soldiers and later German immigrants in
the 1850’s. In an 1883 editorial about the newfangled custom the New York
Times called the Christmas Tree-" A rootless, lifeless corpse -unworthy of the
Day..", Thomas Edison first strung electric Christmas lights around the tree
replacing candles in 1882. Holly bloomed only at this time of year and to Medieval
people looked like the Crown of Thorns with the little red berries
symbolizing blood droplets. Poinsettas were introduced in the 1850s by the US consul to
Mexico Jacob Poinsetta.

And you dream of a visit from Santa Claus ( a hybrid of Anglo-Dutch customs
appearing in it's modern form in New York in the late 1850's. The English form
was St. Nicholas, a big jolly Bishop in a red suit and the Dutch had Kris
Kringle, the elf who dropped down your chimney and was also known as
'Klaus-in-the-Cinders' or 'Cinder-Klaus". The Welsh had a Druid priest who distributed
magic mushrooms wore a red robe with white fur trim. To avoid the more toxic
qualities they fed these mushrooms to Reindeer and drank an ale fermented from
their urine. yeah, that’s where the Reindeer come from. The first image of him
was drawn in 1859 in the New York Sun by cartoonist Thomas Nast for the
anonymously published poem "A Visit from Saint Nicholas" attributed to Clement Clarke
Moore. Nast also created the Democratic Donkey and Republican elephant. In
1866 Nast originated the idea that Santa was from the North Pole to stop post
Civil War squabbling as to whether Santa was a Yankee or a Southerner. The
modern Santa Claus image was created for a 1930's Cocoa Cola ad by illustrator
Haddon Sundblom

The song "THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS" was a secret code from an unknown
author in the XVIII Century. From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England
were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote
this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of
meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their
church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality
which the children could remember.

The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ, don’t ask me why. Two turtle
doves were the Old and New Testaments. Three French hens stood for faith, hope
and love. The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke
& John. The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books
of the Old Testament. The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of
creation. Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit:
Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.
The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes. Nine ladies dancing were
the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness,
Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control. The ten lords a-leaping
were the ten commandments. The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful
disciples. The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of
belief in the Apostles' Creed. The carol "Silent Night" was composed by Austrian
minister Rudolph Scribner in 1848. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer appeared in
1939 in a story by a Montgomery Ward Department Store ad exec named Mayo- Gene
Autry the Singing Cowboy recording the famous song.

So here's wishing you hopes for a "White Christmas" (song written by
Russian-Jewish composer Irving Berlin) and a very Happy New Year (courtesy of the 12
month calendar reformed in 45 B.C. by the Hellenic-Egyptian scientist
Sosigenes for Julius Caesar, modified by Pope Gregory in 1582 and not accepted by
English speaking lands until 1752, else we'd be celebrating New Years in March.-
the stubborn Old Believers were called April Fools )

Merry Christmas, Freylich Chaunnakah, Happy Ramadan, 34Happy Winter
Solstice, Happy Washing of the Buddha, Happy Birth of Mithras- who was born in the
wilderness and adored by shepards, Io, Io, Saturnalia, Joyeux Noel, Bozego
Narodzenia, Frohe Weinacht, Nadolig llawen, Selamat Hari Krismas, Happy Birth of
Sol Invictus the Sungod, Happy death and rebirth of Baldur son of Odin, Happy
beginning of the rise of Porsephone back from Hades to her mother Demeter, and
please pass the reindeer pee ! –

Enjoy!

Tom & Pat Sito 2003
