Not Everyone! Look at the wonderful Art Direction and Background paintings of Tom Codrick, Ray Huffine, Ralph Hulett, Jeff Richards, Claude Coates, Thelma Witmer, Doug Ball, Daniel St. Pierre, Mike Giamo, Tia Kratter--not to mention the great layouts by A. Kendall O'Conner, Lisa Keene, Hugh Hennesy, Jaques Rup, Ken Anderson, Thor Putnam, Ray Aragon, ...the list goes on and on and on. The skill of control in presenting settings that enhance the story and animation--while never getting in the way of it is one of the quirky ironies of the business: Be good enough so that you're not noticed ("The Hidden Art")!!! NOT TO MENTION the mastery of their draughting and painting skills-- ZOWIE! While we're at it--Here's to the great Oliver Wallace and Paul J. Smith, two of the best musical score artists and orchestrators in film history!
