Squirrel eating porridge. This little guy has a face a bit like pepe le pew. Framed. Size 23 x 18cm

Animation cel from NZ television commercial in the 60s and 70s.

Handpainted, original animation cel by Walt Disney Artist John Ewing. He was born in Texas, and trained as an animator at Walt Disney Studios in the 50s and 60s in the golden years of the studios, where he helped craft classic feature films including Sleeping Beauty, Jungle Book, Sword in the Stone, 101 Dalmations and many more.

In 1967 he moved to NZ where he turned his skills to animating classic tv commercials including Hansells Jungle Juice, Greggs cordial and many more

In the 1980s Freelance Animators were the first dedicated NZ animation studio to carry out contract work for Disney and Warner Bros. John Ewing trained many animators, dozens of which went on to work for Weta, Blue Sky Studio in New York, Passion Pictures in London and ILM in San Francisco.

In 2012 modern, digital animation took over so the cels we have for sale are rare and a piece of Disney history, NZ TV advertising history and animation history.

My husband worked with the artist 30 years ago which is why we have them, and are offering them for sale to share the history with others who appreciate it.
